Default What's this noise? 05 LGT 100kmiles


100% stock, new turbo 1k miles ago. Car is for sale by me, I was curious if this could be a timing tensioner? Or is it something more serious? Thanks.

Likely a spun rod bearing.

did it die on its own?

I was going to say it was the tensioner, but it really sounds like a rod knock...were you doing anything in particular when it happened? drain the oil see if there is any flakes...

Yes, died on its own. The owner (not me) said he was driving on the highway when the noise started. Then he said it went away and came back a few days later. I was thinking about purchasing it if it was a timing tensioner issue but if the whole engine needs a rebuild i'm going to pass.

Thanks for the help guys!
