Timing Chain problem Need urgent advice !!!!!

Post by frank554 » Wed Jul 22, 2020 7:58 am

Hi everyone, glad I found this forum as I would appreciate a bit of advice concerning my wee car that I have love driving but it could be the end of it. Its a 2007 Seat Ibiza Mrk4 1.2 12v Reference Sport and has been driving OK with 90k miles on it.
For about 3 years the engine light comes on and off so with a OBD2 code reader I detected miss fire cylinder 3 so I would erase this with the OBD2 scanner. Now I thing I have a timing chain problem, when I do a cold start it high revs for 2 seconds and no chain rattle so would I just need the tensions replaced or go for the whole chain kit replacement which is expensive ...or scrap the car? Thing is the car is mint and I am skint after losing my job due to the epidemic ...any tips most welcome thank you.
