noise in engine
hey guys I hope somebody can help me! I'm concerned with a ticking noise near the timing chain although is not loud i'm worried. I don't know if this is normal with 2000 celicas gts cars that use timing chains instead of belts this noise only comes when the car is parked and the engine is running at 1 rpm or less can somebody tell me if you have or had this problem before or if its normal? confused eek

The celi is loud at idle. I am pretty sure you are fine unless you kepp redlining your car driving it really hard all the time.

I know my oil is right because i checked it every 2 to 3 days and is always at the right level and concerning redlining it i've never done it. its just strange because some days is a little bit louder than others. Also does anybody knows when the timing chain needs to be replaced in the gts 2000 confused wave

You should change the timing chain every 60K on imports. thumbsup
