EJ25 Timing Belt Tensioner busted ? (Pic)

Recommended Posts

I just had my timing belt tensioner checked and compressed at the dealer.


When I went to pick it up he pointed to a damaged piece of the housing. He said 'he wasn't sure if it would held up'.


I looked at the tensioner's damage and ca not imagine that this will have any effect on the working of the tensioner.


However, I want to make sure......don't want the thing to die on me and wreck my engine.


So please take a look at the pics, and let me know what you think.....







You can see the damage on the top just left of the pin.

That little knick shouldn't hurt anything.

But be sure the bolt looks fresh and a-ok.

Mine snapped and trashed my valves.

(on my way home after buying car)!:mad:
