Timing chain maybe due for replacement. Try adjusting the tension on the cam chain. Not sure with your water pump

Is it normal to hear a squeak from the number 4 cylinder rod bearing as I manually rotate engine crank? I have the front end and oil pan off.


make sure that the squeak is not from dry rings in the bore
put oil down the cylinder and rotate the crank
if it goes it could be just dry and need no further checks but if it is in a bearing then it is serious and needs replacing
turning a crank should produce a dry scraping noise as the pistons move up and down the bores but certainly not other noise

Hi.3 cylinder polo on a 54 plate it's done 53k,i've been told the 3 cylinder has a timing chain and will not need replacing is this correct or will i have to get it replaced if so at what milage,many...


Hi the trick with this engine is early oil and oil filter changes to minimise chain wear as they
tend to get very noisey around the 80k mark and often fail before 90k destroying the valves and
pulling off the bottom chain sprocket that is only pressed on to the crankshaft so thats no good either my advise is to run it to 70k if you have to and get something else before it self destructs

There is a noise coming from the front engine where the ventilator is. It sounds like a diesel car, and the noise increase when the RPM increses.My Isuzu Ascender 2004 has only 60000 mi. I'm wondering if...


I recently purchased a 2004 Ascender with the 4.2l in-line six cylinder motor, and under the 60 day warranty, the fan clutch and water pump had to be replaced. The mechanic told me that the fan clutch wears out causing an out-of-balance condition which puts extra strain on the water pump, which was leaking. Another issue may be that the timing chain needs to be looked at, because the tension wheel/gear for the chain wears out, making the timing chain sloppy. Then the chain flops around inside the housing, making a similar noise to the one you describe. Have your mechanic/technician check it out.

How to replace water pump


1. Drain coolant from engine.
2. Remove water pump drain plug. It is located on the front of the block just above the A/C compressor and about 2 o'clock of the crankshaft pulley.
3. Place a floor jack under engine (be sure to use a piece of wood in between jack and oil pan). Remove the right side engine mounting, mounting bracket and nuts.
4. Remove the drive belts and idler pulley bracket.
5. Remove the two black covers on the front of the engine. The one towards the radiator will have the water pump behind it and the one towards the thermo barrier will have the timing chain tenioner behind it.
6. Push in the tensioner sleeve, apply a stopper pin so it does not return ( a paper clip will work ).
7. Remove the tensioner (2 - 10mm bolts )
8. Remove the 3 water pump bolts.
9. Turn the crankshaft pulley approximately 20 degrees backwards to put slack in the chain to give clearance for the water pump.
10. Install the two M8 bolts into the threaded holes in the water pump (the upper hole and the lower hole)
11. Tighten the M8 bolts by turning half turn alternately until the water pump becomes loose. Lift up water pump and remove it. Make sure you move the timing chain away from the pump to remove it. Do not worry about engine timing. It will not effect it at all. The water pump is not part of timing the engine, nor will the chain losse contact with the crankshaft gear.
12. Make sure to use two new "O" rings on the water pump.
13. Install water pump and tighten bolts (63.4 - 85.1 inch pounds)
14. Return the crankshaft pulley to its original position by turning it 20 degrees forward.
15. Install timing chain tensioner, then remove the stopper pin ( paper clip)
16. Place sealer on the black covers and reinstall.
17. Reinstall engine mounting.
18. Reinstall drive belts.
19. Fill with new coolant.
20. Start engine and check for leaks. (Engine will be noise at first until the tensioner fills with engine oil. This is normal.)
