I was driving along and heard a noise and when I pulled the dome cover off there was a broken timing chain guide laying down in the chain. This was the noise that I was hearing. It looks as if there is the slightest of slack in the top timing chain where the guide was broken from.

Almost unnoticeable amount of slack. You need to find a replacement guide. A junkyard is a good place to look.

Thanks for the help.I've been out of work for a year and was afraid that I was going to have to pull the engine aand thatas you know can become expensive. Again thanks,

My pleasure. Yes, it can be expensive. Even if you do it yourself.
