also what is a CAM?
the best way i can explain what a cam is that its a shaft (cam is just short for camshaft) which rotates to open a different valve at a time. on the front of a cam is a sprocket which is turned around by a belt or chain in an ea's case that is attatched to another sprocket which is on the crank, every valve is opened in one full rotation. on the actual camshaft itself it has 12 lobes (on an ea's case) which are called cams. these lobes are a certain amount of degrees away from each other, these lobes spin and scrape on a rocker arm which is pushed down to open a valve.
this is the best i can explain without a diagram.
hope this was some help to you xtream ea.
can some one tell me were the vacuum lines are on the multipoint because i have no idea??????????
