Question about Cars & Trucks
Miami Sun Adult Tricycle. Have only had it for 3 months. Last night what appears to be the chain started making a noise (rattling?). Night before it was fine. Noise only occurs when the chain is moving.

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.

Triple check your battery cables on the battery end .. esp the positive + side.. Side post batteries are notorius for that

Sounds like the fan is hitting the cowl. Check the fan for a broken blade or the cowl for any stray pieces that could be hitting the fan. A loose heat shield on the catalytic converter is also a possibility. Heat shields are basically spot welded and most muffler shops won't touch them. Hope this helps to answer your question.

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.

Check with Auto Zone if no...see the Dealer but also check the camshaft gear sprocket...if its composite you may need to replace it as well...this also causes chains to rattle and jump.
