    Default timing chain

    hey

    the timing chain on my 2004 signum 2.2 snapped in April which cost over £1.5K to get the car back on the road

    ...i've noticed over the last few days that when i start the car up in the morning there is a bit of noise coming from the engine, as if it is the chain rattling (car almost sounds like a diesel if that makes sense?)

    is this the chain / or anything to worry about?

    Its worth checking in case it is the chain and snaps again!

    check your oil level = might be a little low and causing the noise -

    but equally if you have had the chain replaced i'd be taking it back to whoever did the work for a 2nd opinion on what the noise could be
