at the last oil change, and I use Liqui Moly, about 3 weeks ago and WOW...absolutely quiet on start up every time now, hot or cold.Mine was sporadic and wasn't bad or loud and more of tick/slight knock as opposed to a rattle on the tensioner, and only on start up, but I'm telling you that sh*t is good. I had a CEL pop up the morning of the oil change for the tensioner and that never came back,the car runs very well, idle is as smooth as can be. Retail they wanted $48 CAN, but my mechanic got it for $21 so for a high mileage car, I think it's more than worth every penny. Sorry, I can't remember who posted that video but thanks man, I appreciate it.
