Question about Toyota Corolla
If this is in fact the problem then yes you need to change this as soon as possible. The chain tensioner tensions the timing chain inside your engine. If there is too much slack in the chain, it can slip a couple teeth in its gears or possibly even fall off or break! If this occurs it will be time for a new engine. It will be pretty expensive, around 1000 bucks or more. But it could cost 2 or 3 times as much if left alone. My best advise would be to find a friend or family member who can do this for cheaper. It is a pretty intense job so the average person may not want to try this. I hope this helps! Vote yes if so. Thanks!
