What would make noise behind timing chain cover on 2001 kia


IF this noise is a shrill sqeauling noise, their is a good chance it will be the timing chain tensioner pulley/adjuster. These are an inxpensive item and should be replaced each time the timing chain is changed. It is very advisable to get this checked asap, because if the tensioner and chain fail, it will lead to a complete engine failure, wich will be very costly. Being a 2001 model, it may have quiet a few kilometers on it, on the tensioner could be original. Replace these components first, regardless. If noise persists their maybe wear in the valve train.

Timing chain noise on nissan altima 2005 change oil for syntetic 5 w 30 and it got worse before did it only when cold now is doing it at all the times


The timing chaing noise is very common on almost all v6 nissan engines. There is a significant difference for the maxima's though.

Timing chain noise is very common and it is the result of the secondary timing chain tensioners. They often stick and put too much tension on the chain and the plastic guides for the tensioner wear down to metal and that is the noise you hear.

At Nissan, I have performed this replacement many times and I suggest you take it to the dealership to have it fixed.

Timing chain noise


you need to replace the tensioner with timing chain. the tension er is the one that keep the chain in place.

Timing chain wear


That is correct. If your engine is whinning at about 2000 rpm's and its a high pitch whine, you need upper timing chains and chain tensioners. aka plastic gizmo as you called it. The timing chains ride off the plastic portion of the tensioner causing the noise, basically the chain is riding on steal stub from within the tensioner, that's where the noise is coming from. Waranree on this is 5years or 60000 miles which ever comes first. And the new tensioners are updated parts.
