A friends 2002 Camry 2.4 16 valve engine making a clicking noise around the intake plenum.

So I decided to take the serpentine belt off and start the engine to see if the belt was driving the noise???? Researched it on Youtube to see how to do it. Put socket on belt tensioner bolt and pulled down on my swivel head long handle 3/8" drive ratchet. Broke it at the joint!!!!
Got out my 1/2" bar and a 3/4" socket and managed to loosen the belt. Started it up and same noise???
Putting on a new serpentine belt so I threaded it onto all the pulleys and idler etc and took the bar in hand and pulled hard as I could on it and pot! I broke the idler casting hex bolt head off the bracket. OH SHOOT! No other way to move the tensioner spring thingy.
I took the two bolts off of the tensioner and put it in a vice and pushed it together. Oil came dripping out of the rubber boot on the tensioner thingy. Took my four inche grinder with a thin blade in it and cut a grove around the rounded ends of the tensioner spring thingy and tied it down with a big piece of wire to hold it together and proceded to bolt it back in the end of the engine with the belt now mounted on all the pulleys. Then I cut the wire off the tensioner spring and it ooozed back out to tighten the belt.

Moral of the story is I had no idea that the tensioner acted like a shock absorber and that the oil in it has to be displaced slowly when tugging on the bar that is attaced to the bolt head on the bracket and when I tried to force it without waiting for the oil to move I broke the thing.
77 years and counting!

I had a bad one on a Pontiac Vibe (GM has NEVER built a good 4cyl are a 6 that's why they farmed it out and badged it a GM) Anywho they thur a rod out the side of the block... I installed a reman and the engine rattled Shocked the tensioner was bad... It had rattled for so long they thought it was normal Rolling Eyes

Pricy devils ain't they...

How about GM's stellar idea of running coolant through the tensioner on the 3800 AND using plastic elbows to attach it to the block. Real smart...
