My truck has 124000 on it and it has the timing chain rattle. it just got worse something rattles at idle not a knock it sounds like a clang noise like a pulley so i changed the idler and tensioner and took belts off and ran it because i still had the noise. its from the front of the motor too. anyone have this problem? im about to trade it in im scared its the timing chain.
