ELPaso1990TX: Fiat Multijet diesels have timing chains that need changing every 40,000 miles! It costs $1500 to change the timing chain too!

therealjharris: Sounds like a faulty chain tensioner. As far as oil goes, I'm pretty sure that oil pressure actuates the tensioner. Perhaps the tensioner wasn't sticking out all the way?

Trent Taylor: It's weird but, this problem went away when I changed the oil. Must have been low...

1dirosa1 .Michael Dirosa: thats not the timming chain!!!!! was it confirmed, freak thats sounds horrible

Chikonmon: duuuurrppp. derp da durp da duuurr!

Deepak Koppula: Same problem with 07 Mazda 3, 2.3L AT. I spent over $1,500 to get things fixed, changed all sorts of parts in the engine and the noise actually got worse. It sounds like a diesel engine now and noticed that AC use makes the noise worse, it sounds less awful when i move the shift lever to N while at a stop light. I have driven 1,000 miles since and worry that i would be stranded with a dead engine sometime soon. Any comments or thoughts welcome. Thanks.

pinoyeh: Chain tensioner needs to be replaced. Usually, the noise starts when during the 1st engine start up, once oil starts to circurlate, the noise goes away slightly. It will be an expensive job as the parts to be replaced will be the chain, chain guides, chain tensioner and all sprockets.

David Knetsch: We've got the same problem on my wife's '05. Our mechanic said it is a well known problem that Mazda is aware of, forgot the part he said was defective. I found this as I was searching to see if it's covered under an extended warranty.

Huzee66: WARNING: With Mazda and Variable Valve Timing (VVT engines) , DO NOT EVER let oil get low -or- let it go without regular oil changes. Great engines but low oil, or oil not changed frequently will KILL THEM. Happened to me. You've been warned.

Kamper Art: high chance your tensioner is weak.

burnz2510: Make sure you get that fixed/sell it. I just sold my suzuki that had a problem like that, it only gets worse over time. And if it snaps, goodbye engine.

pinoyeh: Holly mother trucker........

RoadRacerGT: Great point and now with Kevlar available...belts appear to be a safer bet.

Nicholas Lefebvre: or replace it takes like 2-3 hours

Ty Nieschulz: Commander can hold more then 400 pounds do your research before you run your mouth these things have amazing reviews and seen them in person they are strong and true.
TechSac: Yeah i have been messing with this thing for a solid week now. The official open android home from pandigital is solid and runs well. It does have some shortcomings. It seems to run youtube very good. It does not support flash but it will play youtube via the app. I installed aptoid and added some repositorys and then i got my apps on it that way. Good Luck....ps more vids coming tonight or tomorrow to update everyone
The Pandora Guy: Oh yeah. Yes, yes, yes. I want so much.
