Timing Chain TensionerFor your vehicle to run effectively, there are a number of parts on your vehicle that need to be in proper working order. A couple of these include the timing chain and the timing chain tensioner. The timing chain tensioner is what makes sure that the timing chain is in consistent, efficient working order at all times. The timing chain tensioner also stands to put tension on the timing chain. If the timing chain slipped from the tensioner being damaged then it would cause the motor to be out of time, which would then lead to backfire, be hard to start and possibly not even run at all. In addition, if it isn't working properly due to wear and tear or other damaging issues, it the systems of chains and gears, which connect the timing chain to the camshaft or crankshaft won't work efficiently. Now, in order to tell if your timing chain tensioner is bad you aren't just going to remove it and have a look. It is one of the most difficult pieces to remove under the hood and isn't on the top of anyone's list to just remove and see if it's okay or if it's worn. Therefore, you must have good ears and listen for a few problems that may occur when the timing chain tensioner is cracked, worn, or torn for some reason. Listen to see if you hear a rattling noise when you start the vehicle or even accelerate as this could mean that there is no much tension placed on the tensioner pulley or that it is possibly cracked. Sometimes the tensioner can leak oil onto the camshaft or crankshaft from being cracked so oil leaks are a good thing to be on the lookout for. When changing gears, listen for a squeak or screech as this could mean the tensioner is under too much pressure. The tensioner could be worn and needs to be replaced.

Timing Chain Tensioner

Frequent misfires, an engine that shivers or vibrates excessively during idle, diminished efficiency and performance are all potential signs that there is some kind of issue with your auto's timing chain or timing chain tensioner.

These two vital parts work in tandem to ensure that engine valves open and close like clockwork: in sync with the intake and exhaust cylinder strokes. A failing chain or tensioner doesn't just affect engine function, though. Neglecting to change out faulty chains or tensioners could lead to serious damage to surrounding parts, including the engine itself.

On PartsGeek.com you will find thousands of timing chain tensioners from top brands like Dorman, Eurospare, Genuine and Swag, including both Original Equipment (OE) and OE equivalent equipment.

Our company is proud to offer a huge selection of quality parts at unbeatable prices, great customer service and speedy delivery. And, our 30-day return policy helps us to ensure that you get exactly the part you need.

What is the timing chain tensioner?

Somewhat resembling a bicycle chain, a timing chain is a sturdy loop made up of metal links. These links are designed to catch onto the toothed sprockets of the cam and crankshafts, allowing for the synchronized opening and closing of engine valves. When working properly, this action should sync perfectly with the exhaust and intake strokes of the cylinders. The timing chain tensioner helps to ensure that the timing chain stays taught enough to work the gears effectively.

How much does a new chain tensioner cost?

The cost of a replacement chain tensioner will depend on the make and model of your vehicle. Most of the tensioner on PartsGeek.com cost somewhere in the range of $30 and $300. PartsGeek.com also offers a wide selection of timing chain kits, which contain additional replacement items such as the timing chain itself and chain guides.

What are some symptoms of a faulty tensioner?

Signs of a potential issue with the chain tensioner are similar to those of the timing chain itself. An engine that tends to stall or runs rough (particularly when idling), rattling sounds from the engine and frequent misfiring all possible symptoms. You may also notice that the Check Engine Light comes on, and that the Engine Control Unit (ECU) provides codes associated with misfire, camshaft or crankshaft sensor issues.

What are some repair tips?

While it is possible to replace only the timing chain tensioner, many mechanics recommend that you replace the entire timing apparatus when replacing any single part. The reason? Even one damaged or misaligned piece can cause uneven wear on other parts. Putting a new piece in without replacing the rest could make matters worse.

Similarly, if an engine utilizes multiple timing chains, it's best to change out both at once. The other chain may very well have more use in it. However, a somewhat worn chain working in tandem with a brand-new chain won't just be less efficient, it can put extra strain on surrounding parts, including the engine.

Finally, to prevent premature wearing of chains and related parts, it's often recommended that car owners use a high quality engine oil that is fully synthetic. Synthetic oils are distilled and highly refined. That means fewer potentially damaging particles circulating through machinery and reduced likelihood of the formation of efficiency-destroying sludge.
