Report: Rattling noise from timing belt tensioner at higher mileages
Toyota Camry Problem
Engine Affected: 2.2L 4 Cylinder
Average Mileage: 195,966 mi (158,900 mi - 243,000 mi)
The timing belt tensioners may make a rattling noise at a higher mileages. This is due to the adjustment being at its limit. Our technicians tell us that range of the adjuster may be lengthened by elongating the slot where the spring attaches by 2-3 mm to remedy this problem.
