This sounds like the tensioner is broke or came loose, this is something you need to have looked at, if the chain jumps it will cause piston to valve damage, heres a picture to show you what im talking about more clearly, also i would remove the belt and run the engine to make sure its not a pulley or the ac compressor clutch making the noise.i circled the parts that may be cause the timing chain to be noisey and also the ac tensioner, hope this helps,i have ratlling sound coming - fb714f4.gif

Check for a bad rocker arm and correct valve adjustment. Make sure cam timing is correct. Never try to retard or advance the cam timing.

It's one of two things. The plug wires are not on in the correct firing order or your timing chain has jumped a tooth on the crank or cam sprocket. You need to remove the distributor cap and make sure there is not a plug wire crossed somewhere by following the firing order in the direction of rotation on the distributor. If not hook a timing light up and see what the timing is running at. If the timing chain jumped a tooth you will need to replace the timing chain. Most of the old timing gear sets had a nylon cover over the teeth and it chips off and or the chain stretches and then the chain cam jump a tooth on the gear and throw the valve timing off enough to where you have the problem you describe. If you have very high mileage probably the timing chain. Also for $250.00 bucks I would start with the garage that did the tune up and tell them there is a problem. See what they say. Hopefully they are an honest garage. Good luck.

Rubbing metal noise coming from timing chain.


Dear Rubbing Noise,
The correct and long term repair for this would be to replace the chain and timing chain tensioners.Only saying to replace the chain seeing as how it's been slapping on metal, where it's not supposed to.This will cure your problem and you will be a happy camper, HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

The water is from the thermostat housing, fairly common leak. The ticking maybe from the timing chain cassette. You may have already had the cam timing slip (the cam gears are not keyed, they are held in place by torque alone. The oil gauge sounds like an electrical problem (either sender or sender wiring).

Engine noise


It is true that this engine DOES in fact have a timing chain. The 3.0L uses a timing belt, which has to be replaced at regular intervals. Typically, the 3.3 & 3.8, which both use a timing chain, don't have to be replaced nearly as often but still requires replacement once they have "stretched" beyond their normal working limits. The timing chain cover must be removed to inspect or replace this part. Typically, timing chain kits (comes w/ crank & cam gears) are sold at local auto parts stores.
