Primary timing chain tensionerLock primary timing chain 
tensioner in fully retracted 
position by placing a paper
clip into the hole in the ten-
sioner body.
Secondary timing chain tensionerUse c-clamp to compress
secondary timing chain
tensioner, then place a
drill bit or Allen wrench
 into the hole in the ten-
sioner body just like you
did with the primary timing
chain tensioner.

Heater hose hidden under intake manifoldIf you have a coolant leak
coming from the rear of
the engine that you can't
seem to locate, it might be
the heater hose located 
under the intake manifold.
You will have to remove the
intake to check, so make 
sure the leak isn't coming 
from somewhere else before
you check here.
