Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hi Im David, Ive attached a couple TSB's that may be of interest to you.
it can be a culmination of things. replace the oil and filter and see if it quiets down then we can look at other possibilities
just checking in to see how its going
ok. thank you for responding back.
hows it going?
ok, then the tensioner for the timing chain has lost its tension and is causing the to rattle.
it is. its a common issue on alot of VVT engines. sludge build up is the major cause of the components failing that rely on oil pressure to operate.
its not piston slap. its the chain rattling.
ill be back on in a bit.
I understand. Have you checked for TSB'S?
Here are couple of TSB's
you cant find any what?
what database do you have?
well , then you need to check the timing components, but I have the TSB's ..dont know why you wouldnt.
