But there is still a knocking noise coming from the timing chain cover. Someone said it could be the tensioner but I don't know. When I accelerate the noise goes completely away. You hear the noise when the car is idling at a stop but when I take off it goes away. Please help me someone.
I had a new timing chain kit put on and a new water pump. on 2000 Oldsmobile Alero

Take it back immediately! Make a video the noise before hand so you have proof if the tech installed the chain improperly caused sever damage to the engine. GL

Thanks a lot for your response. I took it back and he's saying he will charge me more labor and he said that the part may be defeated. I don't have the money to pay him more. Parts plus labor he charged me close to $900. I feel taken advantage of.
