Timing Chain Tensioner Questions

I'm going to address the front engine noise by changing the timing chain tensioner but I have some questions. Would you guys recommend doing both the lower and upper tensioners together? Also what about the timing chain guides. A local mechanic said he hears chain slapping, what would that mostly mean? Thanks in advance.

PLEASE HELP! Trouble get chain tensioner back into timing chain cover

I am doing the Vanos rebuild and everything has been going smoothly and I am reassembling the vehicle. However, I am unable push the new chain tensioner far enough into the upper timing chain cover to seat the threads and screw it in. I have used the instructions from beisan systems to set the timing prior to installing the tensioner (and redone it several times thinking the tension is changing after the tension is set). I have verified nothing is moving after I release the tensioner tool and I ...

S52 Lower Timing Chain Tensioner

The s52 I put in my 95 has roughly 200k miles on it. Im going to be pulling the head soon for a full rebuild. One of the things I was considering replacing was the lower chain tensioner. I was wondering if anyone knows of definitive way of determining whether or not it needs to be replaced? Id rather not spend $250 on it, but I would really rather not have a chain/guide break. When I had the s50, I was able to bring it back to life with a $5 spring. Unfortunately the s52 tensioner is not the s...

Hi everyone, today we replaced the fuel filter and the timing chain tensioner today in the 98 540i and after the fuel filter was replaced it started, kind of crappy at first but after the tensioner was replaced it won't start at all, it just clicks.

HELP: possible timing chain issues

Hey guys, I just bought 2000 model 735i in not running condition, car needed to be saved out of horrible peoples hands and showed respect and some love.

E39 540i Timing Chain Guide Damage

So, my brother's 1999 540i developed a loud noise from the passenger side of the engine. Doing some research, I suspected it was the timing chain/guides. Well, we dropped the oil pan to assess the damages, and sure enough, plastic bits. Some of which are large, but most are smaller. I do have a larger concern though. Along with the plastic bits, there were a fair amount of metal shavings in the bottom of the pan. Is it safe to assume that this is just from the chain contacting the block instead ...
