Today I just had a little project of changing out my timing chain tensioner because of a leak. The switch worked out fine, I'm checking to see if it's still going to leak. I do have a couple questions:
When I was rotating the drive belt, I heard the pop but I kept rotating it a bit more "just incase" it didn't fully come out. Realizing that all the guides on this say to stop rotating after you hear a click, would this cause any trouble? I hear a quiet fast ticking or tapping noise only when I accelerate and when I go faster, it speeds up and gets a tiny bit louder. I put my car in park and revved my engine and I didn't hear any ticking but I t sounds like it's coming from the passenger side of the engine. Did I mess my car up?
Pictures I tried to take:
The part below the tensioner is covered in gunk. Anyone have advice on how to clean it?
