93 Regal GS, L27 "clinking" noise.
Here'* the deal. My friend has a 93 Regal GS with the L27, and it is acting odd. He has a "clinking" noise coming out from under the hood on the passenger side. We pulled the belt off and the sound is still present. I took my mechanics stethoscope out and found the noise to be the loudest near/behind the water pump. Is this a bad timing chain or chain tensioner? BTW, I am assuming it is a timing chain problem by the miles, it has 288k on it. Anyone?
