    About this time last year i replaced the chain/tensioner on my engine because of the very common rattle of the tensioner failing. It's all been good until last week when i noticed the noise starting to come back :(
    Has anyone else had issues this early after doing this job?
    I used genuine parts btw...

    thanks

    Is the failure of the tensioner not a symptom of a blocked oil pump pickup? I'd always assumed the two were interrelated.
