Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

    Wait. A GM V6 3.8l? What year is the engine? What was it out of? The only GM 3800's that I can recall at the moment had chains not belts. The timing chain and gears are installed with the dot on the crank gear at 12 o'clock and the cam gear directly above it at 6 o'clock. Otherwise the job is simple beyond removing and reinstalling the crank pulley.
