That just raises more questions. How do you know the chain is loose? and Why is the chain loose? There is usually a tentioner to keep it tight, is this bad? If the car runs it runs, but if the chain slips out of the gear teeth, you risk serious engine damage. That will be mutch more costly than just fixing the problem now. But in the end, yes you can.
Timing chain noise is most commonly coming from a loose chain. The tensioner could be loose or broken or the chain could be stretched. If the chain slips or breaks before you fix it, then not only will the engine stop running but you could cause serious damage.
Loose timing chain or belt.
AnswerI think this engine uses a timing chain, but I am not 100% positive. Regardless, the noise you are hearing is either a timing chain that is loose or a belt. I would suspect that the timing chain is loose. Have this looked at ASAP.It could also be the timing tensioner also.
A loose timing chain can only be repaired by replacing the timing chain . A loose timing belt means the belt is worn out or the tensioner is worn out. Replace worn parts.
I have a 1982 v45 magna and the timing chain is loose can it be adjusted thanks
A loose timing chain should be replaced.
A loose timing chain can cause the 305 h to jump time. with improper time, the engine will not start.
One of the reasons why a Tahoe motor would skip and pop could be due to a loose timing chain. Some of the other causes of a loose timing chain are rough idle, sluggish performance, and the sudden change in the engine performance.
Loose timing chain? Loose heat shield on catalytic converter?
Timing chain worn out. Replace the chain and drive gears.
If it is loose it can jump time which will cause poor performance. If it is loose it needs to be repaired immediately.
Sounds like a loose timing chain.
This repair is best left to a professional. Why are you changing the timing chain? This is not required unless the chain is loose or worn. It should last the life of the engine.
That means the timing chain and gears are worn out / to loose.
No, not as a part of regular maintenance. You replace the timing chain at an overhaul or if it become noisy or loose. They are normally good for the life of the engine.
Just taking a guess........Loose chain.
Timing chains have an automatic tensioner. If it is loose enough to skip timing or makes a noticeable noise you are probably going to have to replace it. Even chains stretch with use. By the way, changing a timing chain is not all that difficult but, if you don't know what you are doing you can completely destroy an engines valve train if it is not done properly.
This vehicle does not come w/ timing belt. It has a timing CHAIN. No known problems. They can get loose when engine reaches very high mileage.
if timing chain has skipped a tooth, the car will run like crap. you would also hear rattling coming from timing chain area as chain is loose and stretched for it to jump a tooth. more likely to have lost a tooth off one of the timing gears. also u will not be able to time the engine correctly in this condition
lifters are beginning to go. timing chain (if vehicle is equiped) may be coming loose. and or exhaust pieces are loose.
It has a self tensioner, Most often you have to replace the chain it self if it is skipping time or is getting very loose.
what year make and model? it could be coolant or oil. take it back to the shop that fixed it and have them fix it. it is possible that smothing is loose or damaged. or it could also be a new problem.
use impact gun
check your timing chain
