i just uploaded a vid of startup and idling of my 2001 mk5 1.6.

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.

thanks for the reply. no it hasn't been done recently. how long will this usually take? is it a very labour intensive job?

how long it takes depends on your ability with the spanners, get a good workshop manual to follow. i would do the tappetts first as its a chgeaper option to a cam chain.
