Have it changed, it is already wornout. I'm sure that will
eliminate the noise after the it is replaced.

How often to replace a timing chain on 5.2 V8 engine,95 Jeep Grand Cherokee


It should not be necessary to replace a timing chain unless it becomes noisy. As standard practice, timing chains are changed at engine overhaul, at which time adjusters and guides are normally changed too.

1995 vitara 1.5l. Is this chain or timing belt?


I do not think the Vitara came out with 1.5l motor, if you have the V6 motor it is a chain driven motor and they are known to be on the noisy side which according to Suzuki is normal until it gets very noisy!!!

Is it true you can just remove the guides to stop the t/chain rattle


The timing chain guides are extremely important. Without the guides, the chain and gears will wear out MUCH more quickly. The only correct fix for a noisy timing chain is to replace the chain AND gears at the same time.

Are the V6 engines Free spinning?


Hi Lukegerny,
No,the V6 engine is not free spinning. If the timing chain breaks, leaving the valves open as the piston moves through its travel,there will be damage to the valves.How much damage will depend on speed of engine and length of time it ran. You can perform a leak down test to check the condition of the pistons and valves. It will tell you if the valves are not sealing,without having to take it apart. Thanks,Chuck.

My 1990 nissan sentra has a noisy timing chain when running idle.


Your timing chain tensioner is using oil pressure to stay tight.Could be your oil pressure is so low at idle the tensioner just can't stay tight.At the next oil change you could go for a thicker oil and see if the tensioner keeps the chain tighter at idle.

01 explorer timing chains


I may be comming off totally half cocked but on my Ford Explorer Sport I don't believe there are any "Timing Chains" on this vehicle. I just have a Serpentine belt that ties / runs everything together. My "older" vehicles had timing chains to where I pulled the grille, radiator out to gain access to the front of the block.
Funny thing is.......I had more of a headache replacing the spak plugs on my Explorer Sport than the Serpentine Belt. (Go Figure)

Timing chain replacement


What engine do you have? if it is a 4.0 V6 then there is a recall for new cam chain tensioners to address the noise issue.
