i didnt take out the 'timing chain tensioner bolt' all the way out i just loosened it and the chain loosened so yea, well tomorrow ill check the power steering pump where it bolts onto the timing cover , hopefully ill find a leak lol


it doesnt sound like you locked up & released the tensioner properly, or if ... at all

the ticking could be chain slap, or broken guide etc. etc.

please go into detail on how you loosned the chain, and reset the tensioner, as you could potentially f**k your motor
