NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with a 2.0L, 2.4L DOHC or 2.4L
Turbo engine (sales code ECC, EDZ, ED1, EDV, ED2 or EDT).
SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The sound may be noticed when the engine is idling in park between idle rpm and 1400
rpm at normal operating temperature. The sound is on the upper end of the engine
(cylinder head) towards the front of the engine or passenger side (right side). The sound is
irregular, not periodic or harmonious. The frequency of the sound will increase with RPM.
The sound is more of a higher pitch snapping noise not a low metallic knock.

that the sound is from the upper end of the engine (cylinder head) towards the front of
the engine or passenger side (right side), perform the Repair Procedure.

2. Remove L2 cam bearing cap (Fig. 1).
