PostSubject: Need Help- Timing Chain Guide Rattle??   Sun Jun 12, 2011 4:25 pm

I have a question i need help with, sorry in advance if its stupid..

Someone offered me a trade for my 91 hatch. He offered me a 92 hatch, 5 spd, 93xxx original miles, but he says it needs a Timing Chain Tensioner cause it rattles. Is this a common problem on 240's? Is it easy to fix? Any feedback would be great.

-Here is the link to his car... [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

He said he would include an extra running motor, 2 sets of wheels, and some other misc aftermarket parts. Sound like a good deal?? Again, any feedback would be great. Thanks in advance!!!

That sounds kinda fishy to me. Why trade his car that looks just like yours, unless there's something wrong with his? I would be leery.

it is a known issue that the chain rattles. just make sure its actually that and not a rod knock.

That is a huge difference compared to a 91 and 92 240.

haha yea right... i wouldn't trade him either... why does he want to trade his car? for the same thing... that always turns me away when i see an add trade for (same thing im selling) but those rattling timing chains are quite annoying, you can take the bracket thing out and it quiets it down a bit

If a deal sounds to good to be true it is. Good call on passing it up, you probably would have gotten hosed.

i wouldnt trade at all. as for the rattle timing chain it cant be fixed by just removing the guard. the guard is there for a reason to let you know when the timing chain is too stretched and it will be a good idea to replace soon.
