timing chain tensioner
Has anyone on here had past experiences with thier timing chain tensioners going bad? I already replaced the lower tensioner because that is ussually the culprit but i think it may be the upper tensioner that is the problem. From about 2.5k rpm the engine sounds like a rattle err maybe the chain dragging on metal almost... (I it kind of guess sounds like a vanos sound but ussually people think the timing chain sound, is the vanos sound so im ruling that out as my car doesnt sound like a desiel....) The sound only comes under load while driving expecially in the low gears (pretty sure other sounds just block it out in high gears) and it also it evident if you shift and push in the clutch a little too soon in the shift.
I was going to get you all a video but the camera died, so once that charges up i'll post one.
