2000 Oldsmobile Alero Q&A
2000 Oldsmobile Alero Question: I had a new timing chain kit put on and a new water pump.
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. - PatDew
