Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

Timing Chain I think the timing chain is either broke or slipped off because, the car is running rough. It has like a clanking sound when you start it up and the car shakes bad and makes like a poping noise from the engine. Any advise at all would be appreciated.

Stop running it untill you get the chain fixed you will know when it breaks or slips as the motor will not run at all and will bend the valves this will require the motor to come apart and basicley be rebuilt -jeff

Is it an interference or noninterference engine? Think timing chain has broke


Broken timing chain is a very large problem, if it happened while engine is running. Bent/broken valves and such. Makes a LOT of noise, and engine stops immediately.

Your question doesn't include make/model/year, so your question isn't possible to answer. Doesn't really matter, though, if your timing chain broke. That's pretty rare. Timing belt, yes. Chain, no.

Replaced timming chain now does want to run correctly bad fumes


It sounds like the timing chain was replaced one tooth off. The only other option if the timing chain is correct would be to adjust the ignition timing. Since the timing chain was replaced I would think it to be the first problem.

2002 Pontiac Sunfire is out of time, how do I adjust the timing?


The timing is not adjustable. You must get the system scanned for codes to diagnose this problem.

I think you had better have a local shop inspect this for a failed engine connecting rod.

I have had a problem with my timing chain, I have replaced it twice and I am still having the same problem, what is going on?


I dont think a timing chain can make that sound "like a jet'.. When a timing chain goes bad - it will either fall of the gears or make a clanking sound..

The sound you describe seems as though it might be vacuum related or exaust or intake - somthing of that nature.

Will a timing chain/belt cause your car to stall out when driving it and not allow it to start up after it stalls?


I had a timing chain problem, It made a noise for about 3 years and it decided to break last May, the engine just totally stopped. My 99 cavalier had 164,000 miles on it. My friend and I found out the the cavalier 2.2 eng. has a non interfer timing chain. so when my timing chain broke it didn't cause any damage.

Van backfires through air filter housing then rough running, stalls and can't get started again. changed wires and plugs plus catalytic converter, still same problem?


what happened sound very much like either you slipped a tooth on the timing belt/chain or the it broke. the first clue is the back fire, and then the no start. your going to have to take the cover off the timing chain to see if this is the case. i would imagine that if it isn't broke but it doesn't start then it slip the gear. if you have not done this kind of work then i suggest find a friend to help or take to a good shop
