    Ok, so I've identified from videos that I have a failed tensioner. So, I should replace the whole timing set. Now, other than keeping on the correct timing, is it extremly hard to work on? From what I see you just remove the tire and plastic liner to gain access to the side of the motor, remove the valve cover, and then remove the 4 bolts on the side to get access to the rest of it. Now, where do I do from there...anybody?

    1. what tensionor are you referring to, there are two in the timing system.
    2. you really should get a book for reference, and to see what all is involved before you get in over your head.

    I bought a baja bug with that sound I put seafoam in the oil and in literally 10 min. the sound was gone. THEN I replaced the timing chain tensioner to a newer model one. this was on a 2006 2.2L Cavalier motor. been fine for many offroad trips for the last couple of years or so. we are talking all hard driving not like you do on the freeway and back and forth to work. the first time I removed the tensioner from the out side and cleaned and reinstalled. then got the repair manual and did it correctly not sure when in a car but can be done in less then an hour on the bug.

    Any part numbers for the new tensioner?

    I found ACDELCO 12608580, at rockauto, I "assume" that is the NEW number
