If it is the tensioner, it will be easy to fix

    hello, it would be better if u took it to a dealer to fix. you could have a bad timming chain also, and that would go into the engine, and you need the right tools (pullers etc) It wouldn't be cheap to fix.

Loss of power, upper right side rattle, idles and runs rough.


is the 2.0 or 2.5? check timing idler pully (upper) fails frequently on 2.5, also check for arcing in the sparkplug tube. #3 on 2.0 (most common) # 5 [first] # 2 [second (toward firewall)] on 2.5 {most common} my 2.5 had spark plug tube arcing on #5, could barely pull a hill in 5th. idled like badly and had slight knocking/rattling sounds. replaced that wire, had a spare from old set, now pulls hills in 5th at 80mph

Check ALL of your pulleys. Look closely at the tensioner pulleys with the belt off. If you feel any slack at all, replace it soon.

I have just purchased a 1998 malabu with a 3.1 engine. It has a rattle when cold. Any ideas? I've been told not to worry.


IAC (IDLE AIR CONTROL) should be replaced. You will be amazed at the difference when you change it.

Possible camchain rattle


yep, a lot more, if oil has been changed when it should. usual soution to this, unless it really is rattling badly, is to go out and give the bike a real good thrashing. that will stretch the chain a tiny bit and allow the cam chain tensioner to move on to it's next click in the ratchet. in other words, unless it sounds like a bag of nails, leavi it alone but keep an ear out for it getting worse, these engines are one of the best about, not like the Honda who haven't yet found out how to make a cam chain tensioner.

Honda CBR 1000 -87 slacky oil pump chain


possibly but there should be a lock on the chain if think there has to be a way to adjust it id re look the chain and if not id get the dimentions of the chain and look for one on the net but make sure this one has a lock unless it will rattle so much that the lock will fail and the cain will come undone and that could cause one hell of a wreck or a ride bud
