My new car has developed a rattling/vibrating sound when driving coming from passenger side air vent area. I have adjusted all vents during the sound. Stops completely when not moving.Open up glove compartment---only manual inside.Nothing loose can be seen. Closed door numerous. It's driving me nuts!
Question Asked: Timing chain problem
January 16, 2011, 10:06 AM
My car broke down and the mechanic says it's the timing chain--There is no timing belt on my car--just 2 timing chains. The guy is at a Tire Kingdom (closest car repair to me)and is ASE qualified. He charges $99 an hour and said it will take 9.2 hours according to the "book." He will have to order a timing belt kit---worst case scenario is $1400-1500. Is this reasonable or should I go to a dealership or other place? Just paid $323 for repair to the same store to replace a Serpentine belt, idler pulley belt, and alternator fan belt just 2 weeks ago and now this happens. Ugh. Any connection to it all or just an old car?
