Car has a knocking sound near or around the timing


Your timing chain has worn too the point where it needs replacing, this is the only warning you get on newer than '94 model vehicals before the chain or tentioner (if equiped) jumps or breaks causing internal engine damage up too having to replace the engine itself

I have 1998 hyundai excel twin cam l have just put cams out of 1999 excel and it sound like it has a lumpy cam now at lidle.Now my car smells like unburnt fuel.can this be from cam not being in right at...


double check all youre timing marks . loosten tentioner and adjust cam.then tighten chain .manually turn motor over twice then check timing marks again this is a little tricky sometimes because when you tighten the tentioner the cam will move. you have to have the chain in a spot to compensate for this movement.

Noisy motor front end vn v6 commodore, bad rattle sound??????????


It sounds like your timing chain may be worn, A bit of a pain to change but do-able if you have the tools and some time. The harmonic balancer makes more of a knock than a rattle.

I have a knocking in my 99 subaru Legacy L it has a 2.2 and all new parts in the timing chain area, what could it be? When purchased put all new parts, sprockets, pulley and tentioners and belt on new. It...


I think I would pull the timing covers back off and see if one of the pulleys etc. is loose. Did you put the proper tension on the timing belt? It is also easy to put that belt on one tooth off, the motor will still run and can produce the knocking noise, take care and good luck. ps I assume the oil level is good in the motor.

Does the timing chain and anything to with oil


Yes and no. If the oil pump is going bad the Connecting rods will knock. The Timing chain could be making the sound if the Chain guide came free. My guess is you have a 7 - 70 warranty and they are trying to get out of rebuilding your engine.

I have had a problem with my timing chain, I have replaced it twice and I am still having the same problem, what is going on?


I dont think a timing chain can make that sound "like a jet'.. When a timing chain goes bad - it will either fall of the gears or make a clanking sound..

The sound you describe seems as though it might be vacuum related or exaust or intake - somthing of that nature.
