There is a tensioner inside the timing chain cover this is probably loosened up and therefore the chain is loose as well . the oly solution is to remove the cover and tighten the tensioner.

tensioners

2001 estima t idles rough when started


Hi, if it sounds like a tractor and is feeling rough and less powerful than normal, my guese is the timing chain guide (possibly top guide) has come loose. If you can get van over a pit, on jack stands or on hoist and while engine is running, the noise will be louder at front of engine by the timing chain housing, you could also feel the guides rattling, hence the tractor noise. As the engine is revved to higher RPM's the chain vibrates faster and the guide is forced off the chain so the noise lesson's. Parts are available, but before ordering parts you will have to disassemble timing chain housing and check the guide bolt thread on engine side are not threaded, otherwise re-threading the hole and finding the right bolts to fit guide plates can be a nightmare, but you can use helicoil, which expensive but effective. Check also the housing, it may have wear marks due to guides rubbing on it which is not a problem, but as oil circulates through it you wouldnt want it to leak out.
Hope this helps.

Nissan elgrand timing chain when does it need changing


Ther is no set period to replace timing chains but if it is noisy and making a lot of noise I would replace it. Sometimes by using a timing light and checking for timing as erratic flash pattern or moving timing position will indicate a loose chain.

Honda accord service b14


Major caveat to joserivera34's answer: For "B4" it depends on if the car has a belt or chain. The Accord V4 has a chain and therefore there is no timing belt replacement. The V6 has a belt.

When should i change the timing belt or chain on my 1996 5 litre Ford Explorer? It has 194000 km on it.


The 5.0 has a timing chain. A chain will usually last the life of a motor if the motor is well taken care of. The only time I ever replace a chain is if it is making noise or I have a timing cover off to repair a leak and the vehicle has higher miles. Otherwise you rarely see failed timing chains.

Loud clicking noise coming from crankshaft pulley and goes away when a/c is on and when idle is higher. Why the noise?


Take a dry bar of soap and touch it against the sides of the belt(s) while the engine is running. If the noise goes away for a little while, the noise is from the belt settling into the grove of the pulley. Belts can really make loud pooping noises.

If this has no effect, then your timing chain may be too loose for the timing chain tensioner to compensate, and the chain is slapping against the inside of the timing chain cover.

If this is the case, do not let this condition go on. The timing chain cover is aluminum, and the chain is high grade steel. The chain will wear a hole in the cover if it is hitting the inside of it, and that is allowed to continue.

That's a load of **** they are feeding you.The timing chain tentioner has a fault and not tentioning the chian.I think you have done a good thing keeping it on synthetic oil.That causes less wear on moving parts than other oils.

When to change the timming belt for kia sedona 2002


The dealer recommends the timing belt be replaced at 60,000 miles if it is a rubber timing belt. Newer Sedona models have a metal chain timing belt that don't need to be replaced so soon.
