It is VERY IMPORTANT that you give this Priority Attention as FAILURE in this AREA Can cause CATISTROFIC ENGINE DAMAGE
Below is one Item I found Related to your Complaint.

An external spring in the timing belt tensioner could break.
The broken spring may get caught in the timing belt, resulting possible engine stalling.
Dealers will check the tensioner installed and replace it if the vehicle is equipped with the affected tensioner.
Owner notification began September 28, 2000. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-000-222-5500. Also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Auto Safety Hotline at 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).

Click coming from timing chain x type 2.0 jaguar


if the noise is definately from the front engine timing chain cover area then the first thing i would do is remove the auxillary drive belt/fan belt then start the engine to see if noise is still there? if so the only option is to remove the front engine cover and from remember you may have to remove the cylinder heads also, even remove engine for access\,big job, the engine is normally a bullet proof unit, if the oil has been changed at service advised intervals then the hydraulic chain tensoiner etc should be ok and most noise problems at the front of engine area are caused by. ie. belt tensioner, air con compressor,pas pump etc. so if noise goes when aux belt removed look at the that area. hope this helps.

Ticking Noise


ticking noise usually but not always is from the head--valves-usually a rocker arm starved for oil or bent clogged push rod check oil if black and thin can cause tick also extreme cold can cause -because oil thickened sometimes goes away when warmed up-same noise /check oil pressure extreme problem oil pump failing or clogging --timing belt can cause a ticking but they usually fail-- break causing major problem ----other area to check are the pulleys and bearings in witch the belt rolls on-- alternator can also cause a tick when bearing is failing --

93 Diamante making clanking sounds under the hood. From fairly quiet to fairly loud. Sounds like it's coming from the belt area, a/c ciompressor area of the car.


This could be caused by different things. It sounds like it may be your timing belt though. If you remove your drive belts (alternator, power steering and air conditioner belts), and then restart the vehicle, if the noise stops, then spin the pulleys you just removed the belts from, to see which one is making the noise. If the noise does not stop, then it is most likely the timing belt tensioner making all that noise and you will need to have the timing belt and associated parts, idler pulley/s, tensioner, water pump and seals replaced. Hope this helps. Have a nice day :O)

A loud noise around the area of the timing belt cover at regular idle. Disappears when driving, then reappears when at idle again.


Dear SIr,
As you saying noise wont come in driving and only comes in idle , it means noise will not come if RPM is high by norma in idle l, try this one start the car don't drive it just raise RPM(rotation per minute of only engine not vehicle speed) in neutral gear , if noise disappear that mean it a problem of drive belt . If drive belt is got less tension then also it can occur or belt is damage, replace belt problem will solve, (for reference drive belt it drive alternator,powersteering pump,A/C compressor that is made by rubber).Thanks if any problem ask me.
Yogesh.

There is a squeeling by the belt/pulley area


It's a loose belt for sure.

If you have a spring loaded tensioner, and the belt has stretched with time, the tensioner will reach the limits of its travel without tensioning the belt enough to prevent that squeal.

If it has an adjustable tensioner, tighten the belt up.

My sable has 240000 miles. noise coming from water pump. should i replace timing belt also?


If the original Timing Belt is still in the vehicle it is certainly due for a change. The noise is most likely the water pump but if you have the area open already and the time to do the job I would replace the timing chain while I was in the area and had it apart.

Hi, i am using a Honda Civik EK3 1996, recently i changed Clutch / Pressure plate and timing belt, But now i am getting a Grinding sound (very noisy grinding sound like TV channel is not tuned ... ) when...


You may have to do some testing...if it is coming from the belts, start disconnecting them, don't drive the car since you will loose the power steering, but see if the noise still exists. Then if it does, is it coming from around the timing belt area, which brings me to my next question, has the timing belt been changed? Even if it isn't the area of noise; it needs to be done, and the water pump has to be replaced at the same time...location of the grinding noise is important in order to diagnose properly.

yoy could have a bad t belt tensioner or bad t belt pulley. get this looked into right away. you have what is known as an inteference engine. if you lose that belt for any reason, it WILL drop a valve, and your're looking at a lot of money for an job.
