JUST GOT MY CAR BACK FROM TUNEUP HAD INFO COME BACK AS SLOPPY TIMMING CHAIN ANYBODY HAVE ANY INFO ON THIS WHAT IM IN FOR OR WHAT ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPPRECIATED! if u have info send me on here or my email firstname.lastname@example.org thanks again
it may be loose i dont think you have a timing chain i believe its a belt but if its a chain it could snap and if you timing is off it screws your hole car up dont drive till its fixed and no its not cheap
no clue my batts in the trunk it is a knock or somethin or like a screech? does it smoke under the hood unless you car it like a 85 theres a belt nobody uses timing chains anymore there dangerous and screw everything up if the post clamp came off you might have grinded your belt out and warped it you have to detail where its exactley coming from
Most newer engines do use timing chains. They can last for the life of the engine, whereas belts last to about 60,000 or 65,000 miles. Interference engines suffer severe head and piston damage from a snapped belt. Timing chains are not dangerous.
oh wait sorry it is a chain you need a new tensioner best bet upper and lower grab you for about a hundred bucks and in all reality they ar dangerous if they jump or skip they can tangle up as where belts just snap
Interesting. That site really just points out the convenience of the way the timing belt set up can be quickly adjusted, as for track visitors. Over all, it's very hard to suggest that belts are a safer timing method.
it does sound like a timming chain, how hard is this to get at am i looking at serious money! its ticking loudly, it wasent doing it all of the sudden then getting louder???my engine lite came on and said cam sensor bank one and runnign rougher then it was wondering if it skipped out of time???
Finding out the specifics on timing chain tensioner service may take a bit of searching. I wouldn't try it without the Bentley or similar manual. I really doubt it skipped any; if so, it would probably not run at all.
