Fiesta mk5 timing chain noise
Posted 26 November 2008 - 11:13 AM
i've been told that the timing chain tensioner needs to be replaced. can anyone make out what's up with the car by listening to the vid?
PS: it's not a cold start up. on some days the sound of the clatter of what seems to be the timing chain is even more pronounced. i also need to change the head gasket and perhaps the piston rings (maybe a hone job) but i don't know if it's evident from the vid.
Have something to contribute?

thanks for the reply. no it hasn't been done recently. how long will this usually take? is it a very labour intensive job?
hi there it sounds like your tappets rattling have they been adjusted latley. should be every 10,000 mles . its a bit hard to tell on the video.
