SOURCE: rattle from timing chain/cam advance when starting and under load

Hello sir,

There are three possible reasons why your timing chain is making the rattling noise.
1. Oil pressure is low: The tensioners that keep the timing chain tight are operated by oil pressure so if your oil pressure is low then the tensioner will not be working properly hence your chain will flap around and hit the guides.
2. Tensioner is stuck: If you have alot of oil gunk on your tensioner then the tensioner will be stuck and not extend out all the way to keep the timing chain tight.
3. Tensioner is broken: If your tensioner is mechanically broken then you need to replace it.
Having said that, before you follow this write-up it is a good idea to check your oil pressure. Also, in this write up I will not go over how to replace the tensioner but rather tell you how to clean it while it's still installed.

Hi there,
you will need new upper timing chain and sprockets. Common problem on altima your year. Nissan has TSB for it. First they had us remove the upper timing chain guide, but after that, they had us replace all top chain components.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 Nissan Xtrail. I have been losing coolant, even though there are no apparent leaks. Now I am experiencing loss of power intermittently, especially uphill, even to te point pf crawling..

Generally speaking, if you are loosing coolant and there are no external leaks, its usually being burned in the cylinders and going out the exhaust.
You can burn a gallon a week and not see any smoke.
You may want to pull the spark plugs and look for signs of a head gasket or intake gasket leak.
Coolant can also weaken the spark plugs and affect the performance of the engine.

Loud rattle sound when Idling


I suggest you have your car checked as soon as possible - while a rattling exhaust isn't desperately urgent it could be the cat breaking up which might later restrict the flow of gases. Most importantly excessively loose timing belts or chains tend to make most noise when the engine is idling. If the noise is being caused by this delay could be very expensive.

I would double check the belt tensioner, it may have been damaged during the timing chain replacement. Also if those chains use a tensioner, this could be the culprit as well

When you first start it after sitting for 4to 5 hours it has a rattling noise behind the timing chain cover. when it warms up then the rattling goes away.tell me what it could be ...


This sounds like a tensioner or chain looseness issue. You need to open it up and see what is actually happening. The warm up quieting sounds like you are at the end of the life of the chain. It is also possible that some guide has broken.
You have to perform exploritory surgery, and proceed from there. If you need a new chain, replace all of the gears also, or suffer quick failure of new chain.

Mechanic replaced timing chain but rattling noise still happens. he said it could be the oil pump or the chain that runs the oil pump? was replacing the timing chain needed?


Replacing the timing chain is done around 100,000 miles, but can last as long as 200,000.
Sounds like something may be on its way out, and a rattle does indicate a chain. Not all oil pumps use chains...many use gears to spin the oil.
Most people know when it needs replacement when they are calling for a tow truck.
It could be your water pump as well. It is hard to tell where the sound comes from sometimes. A stethescope may help pin-point the sound to the part.
Good Luck!
