Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Timing chain noise most likely if it is coming from the front of the engine. You would need to remove the front timing cover to verify. That would be the first thing I would look at.
If you need more help, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, please rate at the top of the screen. We can continue to work on your question, rating does not close out your question. Remember, in some cases it can be difficult to completely diagnose or help repair your vehicle without being there, but I try to give you the best possible answer with the information that I have. Thanks Dan
Yes you can do that, but it will be more difficult. You need to be able to see the tensioners.
You said the valves and cams look good, could be in the lower end. Tough to diagnose without actually hearing the noise for myself. How is the oil level?

Hello again Dan here,
I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means it’s no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you’re not pleased, or need more help.
Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. Please use the 5 star rating system at the top of the screen, it would be appreciated. If you feel the need to rate less than 3 stars, please let me know why and what I can do to help you more. I do not get compensated for my time unless you rate me.
