Default Mazda replaced timing chain/assembly

For a while I heard a rattling noise on startup, and only when the car was cold. At first, it was occasional and sounded like a loose heatshield, and then it happened more and more. I went to Mazda, had them change the oil, and I told them to look out for the sound. I was afraid it was an engine bearing going bad.

Turns out, on the early models of these engines, they had a problem with the timing chain getting slack and then wobbling itself to pieces. I guess it was very common on the early CX-7s. They replaced the chain and assembly under warranty with an updated version, and the sound went away. Also the car seems to idle a bit better. Just thought I'd inform everyone, in case they were in a similar situation wondering what the fuck was going on.

Any questions, lemme know.

Get ready to pay, if you haven't got any warranty.

Default VVT TSB

Depending on how far past your warranty you are, you might get lucky. I was 5K past my warranty expiration on my '06 MS6 when that happended to me. The service advisors were really cool and went to bat for me. I ended up only paying 1/3 of the cost, as it was a known issue and I had my car in several times previously and it hadn't been discovered. It still cost me $600, but I felt I got off lucky. Good luck with this.

i've been out of my mazda warranty for 17K. i bought an extended warranty with my car for 4yrs/100K and it's actually a damn good warranty. i had the egr valve replaced using this warranty and it covered 80%. hope it covers a good portion of this. seems like a pricey endeavor...

just a quick update. took my car in and it had a bad vvt actuator pin and the timing chain had slack in it. both were replaced. it was $1079 worth of work. my extended warranty charged me a $100 parts deductible and they paid the rest. i got real lucky...
