Replace a Spare part Timing chain tensioner – a defective one or if the limit of use has been already reached. Find out useful information about Timing chain tensioner

Timing chain tensioner is mounted on the engine side part. Its purpose is to retain the chain in its working position, preventing its slacking.

3 tips on timing chain tensioner usage

  1. Average lifetime limit of the timing chain tensioner is about 100, 000 kilometres. After this period, the component should be diagnosed and replaced if necessary.
  2. It is necessary to control the motor oil level and condition. Insufficient oil pressure and presence of wear products in it shorten the tensioner lifetime.
  3. The tensioner should be replaced simultaneously with the chain, guides and sealing elements.

Defects of timing chain tensioner, their causes and signs

  1. Plunger jamming. It may be caused by usage of soiled motor oil. The main sign will be slacking of the chain, appearance of rattling sounds during engine operation.
  2. Deformation of ratchet mechanism teeth. It occurs because of lubricant lack or untimely replacement of the timing chain kit. In this case, the component will not be able to perform needed tensioning of the chain and foreign sound will be heard during the engine operation.
  3. Rod wear-out. It happens due to natural ageing of the material. As a result, the clamp will not be able to fix the rod, and the tensioner loses ability to perform its function. In this case the signs are the same as for the defects noted above.
