    Very rattly z12xe (just had timing chain done)

    Right I've had my chain replaced approx 1k miles ago and was fine until recently it's started a loud rattling sound from the cam cover area. I have done a couple of videos but it was a little windy!

    No warning lights or anything like that.

    Ignore the actual video lol just listen to the sound please

    Very grateful for any help!!

    Argh! I can't stand that noise.

    Has the timing chain and tensioner been put on correctly?
    Sounds like there's no tension being taken up on it!

    That was my initial thought tbh :/ going to take it back to the garage that did the chain for me and get them to take a look.. just thought I'd post it up here incase anyone thought it might have a different cause...

    But yeah I hate the noise and refuse to drive it while its making that sound :/ also gave it an oil change and the oil was really metallic so not sure if chain has been rubbing on something? :/

    Am just sick of this car now tbh lol I wanna get rid of it and get a 1.8 Sri

    If you do, don't fit neons to it


    And if the oil is full of metal, that's not good. Defo seems like there is something fooked. And all that metal will be ****ing other components up

    didnt watch the video, tappets or whatever? 2 of my mates both had the chain done, and it wasnt the chain rattling.

    I did have to put some 5w30 in when my oil light came on and oil was low but I think I may have put too much in for a little bit and then drove approx 10 miles then drained it back out again :/

    How many miles are on the engine? It does seem very tappy

    I did speak to my cousin about this and he says these engines (1.0/1.2) are just loud generally, he's replaced timing chains on them and he says they're still reasonably loud, thing is I doubt the engine is being damaged I would rather have it be just loud than loud and causing damage

    How much does it actually cost to get a timing chain and tensioner replaced? Chances are it costs more than any resale value it would add.

    yeah i agree, although it depends how bad it is, this is why i didnt buy a very nice 03 plate corsa when i was looking though as i didnt like how tappy it was.

    Engine is on approx 95k :/ and oil came out metallic which suggests something isn't right..

    Chain cost £250 and I had it done a while ago before I decided to get rid of the car :/
