1996 2.2 Chev S10 timing chain rattle Sign In

When the truck idles, the timing chain rattles. We have replaced the timing chain, tensioner and gears but it didn't work. Someone said just put up with it but we think the chain will wear out again quickly if we do that. What do we try next?

Did you replace the nylon tensioner?

Yes, actually we replaced the timing chain and it was OK for a few thousand k and started rattling again. So then we replaced the timing chain again, the tensioner and the gears. That didn't work, it still rattles. As soon as you give it gas the rattle goes away.

New timing chains don't rattle. Your noise is likely something else.
