Ok today I noticed my timing chain in my NX is making a lot of noise and I just installed a new tensioner a few months ago, could my timing chain be really stretched ? could it start slipping ? what km mark do they get changed at ? I'm kind of worried about it slipping because I'm driving to Vancouver tomorrow and I would be really screwed if it happened.

Damn they must not have very good spelling teachers in Canada.

hey aztec- Take off you Hoser!
Hey, it must be from ingesting that Molson XXX and(my favorites) A 'fin Du Monde' and Maudite. Believe me, if you had a few of those, you'd be slurring your words, too. My landlady is French canadian, and my Fiancee' is from Rhode Island(imagine an accent that's a cross between someone from New Jersey and Boston), and between the two of them, they drive me nuts! anyway......

Are you sure it's your timing chain? I had a rattle in my Block that I thought was that, but it got higher pitched, and it turned out to be the a/c compressor.

If its the timing chain tensioner you can here it trying to prime itself on start up (it will linger for a good bit)..... sounds like a clicking noise in the valve cover around the oil cap. I found this out a bit late on my DET and it skipped a few teeth and bent all the intake valves. Hope this helps out, I wouldn't want the same thing to happen to anyone else....
