Hey all new here and had a few questions. My wife bought my daughter a 2.4 04' Optima(without me) w/130K and after the "test" drive home I noticed it had a fairly nasty vibration at idle. So I did a little research and decided to swap the timing belt and balance shaft belt. Swapped the timing belt no problem but then ran short on time because she needed the car for college. So I skipped the balance shaft belt as it looked in perfect shape. Fired her up and the vibration was worse? So now I assume the oil pump pulley got spun somehow, even though the timing mark on it lined as it should. My question is does anyone have an actual picture of the plug on the radiator side of the motor that needs to be removed to insert the screwdriver? I have the exhaust manifold off and a plug removed, here is a pic with a screwdriver inserted...Is this right? Huge thanks in advance!!!
