How you fix one of the Honda S2000’s most common problems…

As the car gets older and mileage gets higher on the car, a lot of parts start to wear out. Timing chains, a metal link that syncs the rotation of the engine, start to stretch over time, and that makes it harder for the engine to keep running properly, and that’s where timing chain tensioners come in play.

Timing chain tensioners are used to push a plate against the timing chain in the engine, keeping it taut and well tensioned with the connected gears, so it keeps the engine running as it should. Over time, as the chain stretches, the tensioner is supposed to put pressure against the plate to compensate for the stretch. However, after 105,000 miles it starts to fail, and needs to be replaced. For more in depth information watch and learn how the guy from Engineering Explained does it on his own Honda S2000. While it might sound a bit complicated, but it isn’t that difficult once you see the video.
