    Angryset the cams

    I replaced the head gasket on my 1998 Catera, now it is giving me two codes, cam and crank, I can't seem to understand if i got the timing wrong or not. What could be the problem. Is the timing wrong. The car runs but purely, engine light with codes. It drive and don't cut off, just runs bad. Can some one tell me what I did wrong?

    I am impressed that you were able to do that. Obviously something is "off."

    Sounds like the timing is off. I had to go back into the 99.had the marks off just a little.
