Hi Doru,

I have the parts and I'm about to start on this. I really do notice the Guz..zug..zug..zug... noise for a few second on cold startup. I always thought it had something to do with the belts.

I just wanted to clairfy on this. Are you saying to fill the chain tensioner assembly with oil before putting it back in or will it fill by itself once the engine starts and the oil flows?

If I'm to fill the assembly with oil, should I just put a little inside, basically enough to get it oily or fill it completely?

Thanks again for this DIY.
