    Issues with brand new tension

    I replaced the timing chain last weekend. Every thing seemed great. Until yesterday. Drove to the store just fine. Started back up and it sounded like a diesel. Not just a tick but just like a Duramax Chevy. I got it back home with no problems. The car actually ran great. No miss. Real smooth. Just loud.

    After doing some reading I came across a thread about the same exact thing I had.

    The brand new timing chain tensioner twisted and was hitting the chain or something.

    Now this came in a kit I bought from a major site not a cheap eBay knock off.

    Anyone else have issues with this

    That's an odd failure. The tensioner isn't subjected to any rotation. Possible the internals are assembled wrong?
