There’s the chains that rotate to valve cams and the main chain that makes everything rotate. They all have to be in perfect sink with each other. You can’t just replace any of the chains and expect things to be fine. If they are t in perfect sink; the car won’t operate correctly. If just one of the chains off sink, then car will miss fire, and the transmission relies on the sensors to shift at proper time and if any of the chains aren’t timed correctly then you will notice trans won’t shift correctly. I know its annoying.
Some of you may already know this from my post in the other thread, but for those of you who don't I recently got the dreaded P0008 code for a stretched timing chain. After going to a couple dealers because my car is under warranty and being told it would take a month, that I could not get a...

If it is my timing chain would it still act sluggish when the engine is cold? I was gonna replace the cat this week but I don’t wanna do it if it’s gonna be another waste of money
One thing I did leave out is I tried changing the maf sensor and my car would run terrible when I put it on and it would stall out. So I had to put the old maf sensor back on cause my car wouldn’t stay running with the new maf sensor
