friend said it kinda sounds more like rattling. he drives a nissan and says that the ka's are common for their chains loosening up on the rail and making a rattling noise like that but he says he doesnt know if honda have the same problem.

so maybe tensioner? the chain got loose from the rail? has anybody heard of having problems like this?

and i idle car at 1.5k and the noise gets VERY VERY loud and when i let off it goes back to normal idle at 1k then sarts rattling again coming in and out.
