    Default Z20Net Timing chain

    Well got motor back from garage yesterday after going in to get the whole timing chain/tensioner/guides and cogs which i have had in the garage for a while now i got call from head mechanic half way through the day saying the rattle you have is not the timing chain ...we have had the motor out and done all the tests and inspection we can think of and its definitely not the timing chain .... so off to the garage had a meeting with head and 2 other mechanics after a lengthy debate they are thinking its the DMF or another part of the clutch ... so im no further forward in tracking down whats causing the noise or getting it fixed ...parting words from gaffer was let it develop and then we will be able to fix it don't get me wrong i can actually drive the car without this rattle occurring as it only happens in second gear when in low revs and you give it some stick if i drive like Sunday driver its OK .... anyone had anything like this before?

    Does sound like a transmission issue phil, but it also sounds like its going to be a ****** to diagnose!

    I assume you got the chain replaced anyways?

    I used to have the same problem with my old pre face 2.0T Siggy and was all ways led to believe that it was the tensioner, it kind of twittered and rattled at low revs if you put your foot down.
