Default Timing Chain Tensioner Problem Car Not Working Anymore Help!

P.S ---> I know there is a sticked thread about that but i posted there too i just need a fast answer thank you for understanding.

hello guys my problem is 100% the same but now im having troubles, the noise started a month ago but only when the engine was cold then it started to stay longer and now the noise is always there i went today order a new timing chain tensioner from nissan and went to someone he changed it for me and then we did an oil change when i started the car in the garage the noise was even worst but then went like before... After that i went back to home but the car stopped completely i was not able to turn on the engine anymore i know the engine is still good but im not sure if its the timing chain that maybe jammed... Tomorow i have to bring it back to the garage and try to fix that and i guess i have no choice to change guide with it the guy is asking me 300$ and i think it's a really nice price but i want to get sure if its what i have to do or if the tensioner broke again or if i have to change the timing chain please help me i hope it's not the valve that broke


(i know my english is a bit messy its because im french)

This doesn't sound good, how long did the garage (hours ) to change it out ?

Thats a pretty cheap price to do this job , I wouldn't try to crank the engine because you can throw the timing off and bend the valves.

I would tow the car to your mechanic , don't do anymore damage by cranking it.

There's nothing you can do now but wait until they get it apart to see what's going on.
