I have a 2004 Chevy Cavalier that had the belt tensioner replaced. It is also making a noise from the timing chain like the tensioner is not functioning correctly.

It will start up but sounds terri

Have a 2000 ford expedition 4.6L. had a sewing machine noise in the engine. . . did some research and found it was more than likely timing chain tensioner. factory installed tensioner guides were completely worn at both ends, and started to wear down the tensioner itself. replaced guides and tensioners, and reassembled. now the truck barely runs, very rough, and knocks. guessing valve timing might be off. . . .. .what now?

2000 Cavalier 2.4L DOHC It has a loud knocking / tapping noise like tapping on a piece of metal with hammer. It does increase with rpm. Looking at the engine, the sound is loudest on the passenger/ timing chain end. Oil pressure is good. Is there any method to determine rod bearing or valve / lifter area. I really do not want to take the upper end apart and it ends up being a lower end problem. I already replaced the timing chain tensioner. Any Ideas?

When I start the car, there is a howling wind noise that comes from the engine. When I push the gas pedal, you can hear it a little more until the car seems to be warmed up. They just had to replace the timeing chain less than a month ago and now this is happening. Does anyone have an idea on whether it can be the air filter or could it be something with the transmission??

Starter replacement? For a while now I've had a periodic , occasional click when I try to start but eventually it kicks over. The problem has gotten progressively worse and would not start today until I pushed it about 20-30 feet. It seems to me it's down under neath and not in plain sight. I don't like doing even simple stuff but wonder how tough it is to get tension off, and back on the belt. Can anyone give me an idea of how to get that starter out, tools needed and rebuilt cost? Thanks!


If the car dosent sound like its turning over and only giving clicking sounds, than most likely the battery needs to be charged. ... 1997 Saturn SL
