Sentra with Pulsar Chain

We received a visit from a friend of friends, Abu with his Nissa Sentra GA13 12Valve single cam engine inside. Rattling from a distance, we can hear the knocking sound that usually created by a Diesel engine.

Further checking, the sound were coming from a loose timing chain. The car can’t move no far now as the chaining are rattling all over the place. Need to undergo Timing Chain replacement for this Nissan Sentra.

Once all of the related components were disamntled, we move on to the heart of the problem, timing chain. To change it, we have to remove the timing chain cover. We found that it’s a bit tricky to open up the timing chain cover at first.
