I'm reading my haynes repair manual and its telling me that my 3.5L v6 is a dohc is this true? or is this only on some 3.5L?
Ronbo said:The first gen 3.5L is a DOHC engine. If I remember correctly..doesn't the badge on the front door say something like 3.5L 24V DOHC? Might be wrong about the DOHC..but I do remember the 3.5L 24V is on there. You won't have 24 valves on a SOHC V6..there would be only 12!
k-nash said:For sure, our 3.5L both gens are SOHC, refering to that one (single)camshaft in each cylinder head, spinning the rockers on the four valves per cylinder. :grinyes:
Only the 2.7L has two cams in each cylinder head.(total of four)
the first gen door says 3.5L 24 valve.
Yes, your engine does indeed have two cams. One is above the left bank and one is above the right bank. But it is a SOHC engine. If your engine had four cams, two above the left bank and two above the right bank, than you would have a DOHC.Teamhex2002 said:wait what? i have two cams in my first gen 3.5l sport....i have been told by more then a few people its DOHC..... im confused...i think the manual is right...i own one as well
thats what people say..they say oo u have 24v so urs is probally dohc. ok well thax for clearing that up24vsleeper said:All you have to do is pop your hood and look at the timing assembly cover on the front of the engine and you can see exactly where the single cam wheels are at the front of the heads because it is of course shaped around them. People always slip and say 24 valve dual overhead cams because as far as I know all Japanese cars will have two cams per head if there are more then two valves per cylinder. The DC intrepid on the other hand just used one cam with four rockers per cylinder to open and close the valves.
