Timing Chain Problem 22re Engine

Today I bought a 1994 Toyota Truck with a very loud timing chain in hopes of repairing it. The truck only has 77k miles and is in very good condition otherwise. Why would the timing chain be very loud? Would anyone on the forum know of anyone or be interested in getting paid to repair it in central virginia? Im not interested in paying the dealership 1500$ to do it.

I had an 88 I replaced the Timing Chain on. It wasn't cheap. But you better do it before it breaks cuz then you will have serious issues. A good mechanic should be able to do it no problem. Don't take it to the dealership

Yep the guides wear out and break, the noise is the chain eating into the timing chain cover. Don't wait on this.
Its really a pretty easy thing to do. there are plenty of kits with new guides, chains and sprokets just look on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Toyot...Q5fAccessories

Don't get the kits with metal backed replacement guides, yes the metal part will last forever, but plastic can separate and then you have chain on metal again and lots of noise.

otherwise follow the quide Dark night post for doing and you shouldn't have any problems

I had my guides break on my 93 pick-up. It wasn't noisy and I never found out until it was too late. I currently have an 88 in my garage I am rebuilding. I replaced the timing chain set with a metal backed guide from ebay.

This is the set


New HG


Installed


This is the old set. Notice the pieces missing? +130k miles on it




The old tensioner. It should be flat. Those grooves are from the chain.
