Has anyone had any problems with the timing chain or tensioners on their c230k? I had a bad engine problem which was determined to be a loose (very) intake manifold. Put new intake gaskets on and it ran great for about a day Now it starts and rattles (sounds like timing chain) which goes partially away as it warms up and still has a bad miss/lope at an idle (so bad the car will surge forward at an idle). After you floor it it feels ok but not great. It almost feels like it has jumped a tooth on the timing chain. The car only has 71k on it. Oil changed every 6k instead of 15k Any ideas?
I dont think the intake manifold is a frequent problem (just my luck) but I know now these engines are prone to timing chain problems just hoping now that we dont have valve problems to go along with everything else! Thanks for listening I'll let you know how everything goes.
