How loose can the valve timing chains be and still run?


There is a tensioner and being loose is not as bad as wear, you might notice some backfire noise when the wear gets excessive.

Is it dangerous to drive with a bad timing chain


Silly question isn't it?

If you have any vehicle problems you
don't use it,you make the required repairs

It doesn't start when cold,wouldn't it be in a shop
or taken apart by now?

I think the chain guides are the problem,not the chain

Why it doesn't start is possibly any number of other issues

Problems with 07 tundra, engine light on, won't turn over completely without pumping gas pedal. Told it needs timing chain replaced


Timing chain controls the valve timing and causes running issues. It sounds like the chain and or chain guides are bad and you should NOT drive it that way as you can cause much more damage. Get it fixed and you should be fine. If it is a high mile car have them do a complete inspection of the vehicle before you spend any more money so you know if there are more issues.

this is not good at all from what you are describing ...put a new timing chain on the vehicle before you are walking ..If you are driving it your motor is fine ,,but out of time ,,i just hope you are not driving with a broke piston or warped cam ,cracked heads ,burnt valves ..yeah this could make any mechanic scratch and run ..not me ..I always find the problem ..most people can afford what I know ...Good Luck

Ratcheting noise on startup


Yes the tensioner is what keeps pressure on the chain or belt to keep it tight.If the chain or belt gets too much slack it could jump a tooth or two or worse it could come off while you are driving,causing severe engine damage.

My timing chain is bad


As timing chain accumulate mileage, chain stretch, sprockets wear out and set the valves off timing. Most chains go up to 100000 miles or more, but not always. As a rule when there is more than about half inch of play between the gears on a V6 or V8, it is the time for a new timing chain and sprockets.
It is unusual for a timing chain to accumulate 200000miles, but I remember a car, with broken timing chain with only 160000miles on it.
Signs of worn out timing chains are:
Rough idle.
Sluggish performance and poor economy.
Sudden engine performance change including the inability to start the engine.
Intermittent backfire through the intake manifold.
Inconsistent ignition timing or a clattering noise coming from the front of the engine.
It is a good idea to replace the water pump (coolant pump), and the thermostat while replacing the timing chain.
The cost of the replace of timing chain is at least +$1300, but if is to bad, we pull out engine and replace both guides. In this case might cost more.
Please do not be mad with me. I'm a certified dealer, and I'm trying to give you the necessary information to help you to deal with the problem.

Part time light on when in 2 wheel drive off when in 4 wheel driv


I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty I had the same, there's a switch underneath the vehicle for the cable near the 4 wheel drive shaft, I had a transmission shop replace mine and that took care of the problem, I think the total cost was about $120.00 but that included labor.
