pl521sss Posted April 30, 2009 Report Share Posted April 30, 2009 Problem on a friends car I hear a noise at idle and sounds like a slapping sound. My guess is the timing chain and it's missing the tensioner. Right side of the chain is very loose Can timing chain skip or move to the next toothteeth on the sprocket? Not able to take out the engine yet to address the problem. Timing appears to be in the right place last we checked. Owner needs to drive the car for now but concerned that it will cause bigger problems. Other symptoms now it dies on normal take off but it's fine when I baby it. Once it's running and rev it high on any gear, it's fine. Is this related to timing chain and timing issue if tensioner is missing? Quote Link to comment
