Re: Timing Chain Rattle?
your best bet is to have the engine idling, get a large screwdriver and try to pin-point where the noise is coming from, you should hear it most on the passenger side of the timing cover if it is the chain. Hold it up against the water pump also, you will find out quick smart if it is the culprit.
Also, remove the timing cover and see if you can lift the chain from the top sprocket at all. Also I would start by replacing the tensioner, it MAY solve the problem and if it doesnt, you would have to replace it anyway
