Hey recently i just found out that my timing chain just went and needs to be replaced...the repair shop i go to says they won't change it without taking the engine out... is there any was i could do the job myself without taking the engine out? im a bit in a rut for money and am not completely mechanically inept but would definitely need step-by-step instructions in order to do this...thanks guy!

one side of the engine needs to come off, I think its a big job

Im pretty sure you can do it with the engine in the car, but its a lot harder. I also think though, that its ALOT easier to do on the 2.4 than it is the 3.4 so you "lucked out"?... on this i guess.
