2001 intrepid makes a ratleing nois were the timming chain goes


well if you know its making noise from the timing chain then its probably time to replace the chain and chain tensionors and chain guides, the tensioners and, guides are more likely to make that type of noise but if you havent replaced the chains it would be a good idea to do it all at once

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.

Bad slapping noise.


could be something with the timing chain system. There were some complaints about the chain slapping the cover and even a good number regarding failure for these cars. If it's anything more than a slight tick I would, or have a professional, take a look at it. If one of the guides, or the tensioner, or even a link in the chain itself let go it can spell big trouble if you try to drive it.
