I have a 91 22re 4wd 5spd when it first starts it makes a loud clacking noise that goes away after a few seconds what is that noise my rocker arm shafts and rocker arms are in good condidion


Sounds like it could be your timing chain. There is an automatic chain tensioner and over time when the chain gets a lot of miles on it the plastic guides and chain have to be replaced. Typically around 125,000 miles or more. You can remove the valve cover and look down the front of the engine to verify this. Look to see if the plastic guides are still in place and that the chain is not rubbing a hole in the front timing chain cover. Let us know your findings.

The 22re engine was infamous for having timing chain problems where the timing chain guide and tensioner would rub on the back of the waterpump. Check your timing chain to make sure all components are operating correctly and check the back side of the water pump. If it succeeds in tearing up that water pump cover you will coolant rush into engine and water lock the motor. More damage than checking and or replacing the timing chain and components.

Timing chain


It depends if the valves are bent bad enough there will be lash on the rocker arms, the valve can't close now that it's bent.

Engine noise that makes my 2002 Saturn Vue V6 AWD sound like a diesel. Could it be a rocker arm that needs adjustment? If so, what repair cost am I looking at?


it could be a rocher arm, or it could be the timing chain tensioner, mostly it the rocker on those they make it sound like the motor is going to blow, to have the rocker checked and adjusted i beleive is about $180.00. good luck.

Bad engine rattle


hi, the most likely cause is going to be that the hydraulic lifters are going to need replacing these are what control the valves from the cam shaft these lifters ware over time making the gap bigger between the valve and the camshaft so then you get this rattle the only way to solve this problem is to replace the lifters.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Turns over but won't fire


well the plastic piece are from the timing chain guides are either broken or ripped off,and the metal rattling was probably the timing chain,,i think the timing chain jmped or broke and broke the guides,if thats the car you most likely bent the valves in the head,,,i would remove the cam cover and the timing chain cover and see what you got,you may need a engine
