Have 1984 Celica Gt and not sure of milage and think it should have timing chin replacement.before problem./Looks like a chain.
Its for sure loose, could be ur actuator like i mentioned preciously. If ur gona do it change ur chain and actuator and reset ur tensionor.

No.... SOME loose and tight spots are normal because when chains are installed they are not PRE stretched. However thats with a grain if salt, what is being displayed is excessive. So we move on from there.If you turn the crank pulley to a different position of the chain and it's tight b't cams then its tensioner
Yes. I’m speaking from experience because of it happening to meNo.... SOME loose and tight spots are normal because when chains are installed they are not PRE stretched. However thats with a grain if salt, what is being displayed is excessive. So we move on from there.
If i take the chain off the crank.... and turn the cams at the same pace it will stay tight between cams aslong as it doesnt skip a tooth... unless theyre is excessive stretch in the chain, or the cam gear actuator isnt functioning properly.
The likelyhood of a tens failing its very unlikely, its a ratcheting mechanism. Its rides aginst the chain and it clicks the next tooth on the mechanism as the chain stretches an keeps CONSTANT consistant pressure. If it feels any give it clicks the next tooth.
If the tens is maxed out then ITS NOT a failed tens its a STRETCHED chain.

Yes i forgot i read google on your resume.Yes. I’m speaking from experience because of it happening to me
If some 1 is giving bad information like suggesting a 25$ timming tens.... i have to point out what a bad idea that is.If the chain is worn enough to have slack then it‘s good practice to change out corresponding components if it is to be a fixed all at once to have peace of mind and no question. mxaustin, do yourself a favor and don’t condescend others when they are trying to help. Maybe you should google chain tensioner, Amazon has them for $25.
