its still there. sorry i didnt mention that before i did that this has got me stumped
THAT MEANS YOU NEED TO GO DEEPER INSIDE OF THE ENGINE TO FIND THE TROUBLE IF IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS UP FRONT.
BEST TO REPLACE ALL TIMING COMPONETS AT THE SAME TIME! THAT'S MY OPINION.
if the tensioner and sprockets was not changed when the chain was replased would that cause a whining noise coming from timing cover
GET ANOTHER OPNION FROM ANOTHER MECHAINC. TWO HEADS BETTER THAN ONE ANY DAY.
GOOD LUCK. ALL TIMING COMPONETS INCLU. BALANCE SHAFT KIT ALSO!
