    Tata indigo - Timing belt Tensioner problem

    I have Tata indigo and in which had done 80k and the timing belt tensioner bearing problem started after a few services began arriving when the engine is at idle. When taken to an authorized service center who said the problem is due to the timing belt tensioner bearing is gone and it will cost around 3k. Is it normal for a Tata indigo that has been done only 80k miles?

    Just confirm that if it comes to having the timing chain or timing belt serpentine. Well, if the bearing is defective, the sound will increase whenever the rpm is increased while the need for adjusting the belt tension is very low rpm. Usually, the band produces a whirring noise and produces rolling metallic whine.

    Well, I think it all depends on the quality of that particular piece in your car. But that does not mean that all belt tensioner is damaged. Just make sure that the sound comes out of the belt tensioner and nothing else. Generally, during operation of the cover is opened to check the status of the belt. It may be possible that the cover is not fixed properly and because of this that is in contact with any part. So you should get it confirmed and replacing defective parts as soon as possible.

    Even I was having the same problem and change the main bearing, which cost me about RS4500 and since after the replacement of the problem still persists, the buzz was still there and mechanical service center told me to take time to resolve.

    You should get it checked by the local mechanic or service center before doing different work. And if there is any major problem, then I recommend to do it form the local mechanic as the service center will cost you much.

    Well, I think you change the timing belt and tensioner 75 km which is quite normal for cars in India. I had replaced it in my Hyundai Accent 70 km so you do not have to worry just get it replaced as soon as possible.
