Hello there, I have a rattle coming from the front timing cover. The noise starts around 1200 rpm- 1900 rpm, I am thinking it is one or both of the chains. Please let me know if anyone has any experience doing these and also if you have any diagram on how to set the timing marks.

Thank's Beforehand,

Pedro B.

you probably just need the hydraulic chain tensioner replaced.
