Never heard of a grinding timing chain. Maybe your starter is dragging. Get your starter rebuilt. Check your battery voltage and alternator amp output. Check all connections at battery starter and solenoid.

Plug your car in when its cold!

That problem does exist in older Nissan Pick-Ups. Some Used Car books mention this as an annoying but otherwise not troublesome rattle of a chain that has been manufactured too large for years. So the grinding noise can only be fixed with a revised model of timing chains for a lot of $$. Apparently, the noise stems from the movement of the chain itself and not its banging against any housing. After all, it sits in oil, so I just replace the oil more frequently.

Timing chain noise?

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.

There is a noise that sounds like it is coming from the Timing case in 1998 Sunfire GT what could it be?

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.
