Timing chain noise

The chain, gear teeth or possibly a tensioner could be going bad (worn teeth or tensioner, stretched chain).. you need to replace whatever before the timing slips and valves are bent/broken.

Im buying a nissan wingroad 2004 1.8L 4wd. The guy told me that the chain belt has stretched but when he gets it serviced they tighten it and it is usually fine for another year. is it a major issue?

It will only stretch so much before it fails. It always will affect
the timing and the amount of power the engine produces. It can become a major issue when the pistons hit a valve and bends it

Chain will not stay tight

Your problem could be that the chain did not get the proper amount of oil when it was used the first time. Oregon chain recommended soaking a new chain in bar and chain oil overnight before using it the first time, so that their would be able to seep in between the pivot points on a chain. If this was not done the chain would continuously stretch meaning wearing out at each pivot. It may be that your bar is not loosening so much as the chain is stretching from lack of lubrication. The Oregon rep said once the chain starts to do this it is will continue to stretch till it fails. You would need to get a new chain and oil it properly.

Can a timing chain be tightened on a 2003 sunfire? It's blowing black smoke, raps loudly when I start it then quiets down (but still raps) during idle. It also gets very loud during acceleration and...


Timing chains cannot be tightened as such.

However, if you are experiencing chain "chatter", it is possible to reduce this noise by either:

- changing to correct viscosity engine oil
- replacing the chain "tensioner"
- Last resort: removing plastic chain guide inside timing cover (Note: only do this if it does not adversely affect the chain operation.

Timing chain was replaced on 99 model v6 suzuki vitara 20000 ks ago but the the number one tensioner was not released properly because plastic retainer was not removed have stripped down and released...

It may have stretched, but you would have known if it had stretched more than the tensioner could make adjustment for at the time the front cover was off. When you say "left bank", are you meaning the LH bank when you look into the engine bay (which is actually the RH bank), or do you mean the LH bank as in the LH side of the car? As it sounds like only the main chain was replaced initially, my thinking is that the 2 other chains and tensioners also have some wear. The RH tensioner is the only one you could possibly get an extra click out of the ratchet without pulling the entire front cover off again. You do have to remove the RH rocker cover, and with a fabricated "hook" pull the tensioner block upwards. Listen for a click (or clicks) and make sure there is no slack on the top of the chain between the sprockets. This tensioner can be starved of presurised oil if the engine is sludgy, and doing the above doesn't solve the blockage but will quieten that particular problem. Anything else will require the timing cover to come off again.

Poss loose timing/cam chain!

Cam chains are self adjusting. They have a tensioner that takes up slack as the guides wear and the chain stretches. You may be able to get away with new guides if your chain isn't too stretched. Look for pieces of plastic in the oil, which will signal work guides. It is possible you are hearing the valves rattle, and it would be time for a valve adjustment.

Chain slips on up hill grade only and I've pulled the rear tire back to tighten the chain as much as possible.

You may want to take your bike down to a local shop and have them put a chain guage on the chain to see if the chain is stretched... This should be a free service...
If the chain is stretched, it will tend to want to jump when under pressure... if this is the case, the chain should be replaced before further damage to the gears occurs...
