    Hi mate, its not really wise to drive it, when the chain starts to rattle you need to get it sorted ASAP or it could end up costing you a new engine. When they rattle its on its last legs mate.

    Main chain kit should cost around £100, then there is the balancer chain, again about another £100, make sure you get genuine GM kits mind, as the tensioner has been updated from the one fitted to your car.
