  • Chain Tensioner

    So, heres the scoop. I got a new ebay timing kit. I threw out the old tensioner right away as to not mix it up with any of my stuff. I threw on my old tensioner last nigh so I could turn over the motor and see if everything was happy-go-lucky. I called the saturn dealership about getting a new tensioner, well, it it will take them three weeks to get it in stock... i want to have my car on the road by then. You guys think its ok to use the old tensioner? it has roughly 160K on it....

    Goto another Saturn Dealership? or have someone goto another dealership on the forums, get you one and mail it to you. Won't take 3 weeks. Maybe 2-3 days.

    I hope that's Saturn Timing Kit... not some after market one :-D

        I reuse old tensioners all the long as the plastic on the plunger is ok, and you can sqeeze it back down, then it shouldn't be clogged and it should be ok.....just try to get all the old oil out of it so that the chances of it gumming up are lower.
