I recently purchased a project Vitara (2001 2.0L with auto trans) which had a broken timing chain.
Pulled the head and installed necessary new valves and a new head gasket, etc. Fully reassembled everything and she fired right up...
BUT I immediately discovered that it is idling...
My 2.0 J20A Sidekick is vibrating with an RPM decrease when I:
1. Use power steering, or
2. When I switch gears from Park to Drive or Park to Reverse (Same with Neutral to Drive/Reverse)
The car doesn't stall but it definitely feels like it's about to.
Any idea what it could be...
