    Nissan Micra 1.3 1996 - Sounds like cam-chain timing tensioner needs replacing # Archived Message

    Noisy engine - Sounds like cam-chain timing tensioner needs replacing. AutoData says this is a 12hr+ job (chains & tensioners) and involves splitting the engine.

    If the bottom tensioner only were to be changed (without changing the chains) is this possible & how long would it take to do. At least this may give a little more lifetime to an, otherwise sound, engine and be considerably cheaper to perform this fix.

    Thanks
    Martin
