chain slap.

Recommended Posts

I'm getting a rattling sound coming from cylinder 4 and the front of the engine, could this be my chain? The car has 124000 miles on it

If you can take off that cam cover you may see more. Not impossible that one of the chain tensioners is faulty..but quite rare.The chain guides have been known to wear...but top end/valve noise is usually...dare I say it...the bottom end...

terry after digging into it, it seems the chain tensioner has failed,  allowing the chain to smack everything.

 

 

Looks like i need a new car for now

I don't know if this is fate or what...But it appears mine is doing the same thing, but in the rear bank. How did you happen to check the tensioner so easily? My last 2.5 died because the guide snapped, and well all down hill from there.
