mine made noise for a year. especially when it was cold out. i ordered a timing belt kit and changed everything. it could last a year or it could seize up on the next start up.
A little rattle between 1k and 2k rpms. Found the problem to me the tensioner pulley.
when I would apply pressure to circled piece there would be no noise through the RPMs.
Not sure when I will be able to replace the pulley and timing belt so basically asking how fast do i need to make time for this or should it be alright to drive for another week?
