    Default Engine Rattle on start up

    When the chain is on its way on the Z20NET what are the signs? My car has a rattle on it every time it's started up, even if it's warm. When the engine is running its fine, no noise. The noise on mine is only on starting it up for about 2 seconds then it's gone. Should I be worried? My car is a 2007 model Z20NET with 57k on the clock. I have had a pre face lift sri turbo before and it never sounded like this one. Thanks for
    any info. What's the price on a new timing chain fitted these days?

    As I said before fella, the rattle on start up is the sign the chains not very well, or the tensioners nackered. I did mine for about £180 all in, but that was just parts with trade club discount. Was worth it though as it's piece of mind and she's quite as a mouse now.

    Remember you saying you had done chains before? If so you will be able to do this piece of cake, it's easier and cheaper than fitting a new engine anyway

    True, I intend to get it done as soon as I can, I just worry about it all the time. What are the tell tale signs of the chain on its way out, do they rattle on idle as well? Thanks

    If it's really slack it will rattle on idle, mine only rattled slightly on idle, yet when I replaced it they was about an inch play. Worthwhile getting it done though mate, both chains aswell not just timing chain
