Barbie rattles

Well barbie had a rough weekend and it showed today.
With all the revving and racing with the 08 Im now hearing cam chain noise.
Is it me? am I vicariously being a hypochondriac for the 94?

Heres a link to a YT vid. first 20ish seconds is the chain noise after that theres a slap somewhere when i twist the throttle.
opinions anyone?
thx

All I can say is try adjusting the DOO, if it makes a difference then it's working, if not then If you are still worried I'd be having a serious look inside.....your engine your call...it's very hard to hear noises with video clips sometimes.

Whats the saying better safe than sorry....

Mine used to make that noise until I replaced my Doo... Sort of like a Piston Slap right when you twist the throttle.

After relistening to it with eyes closed it sounds normal.......piston slap ....how many miles? How hard do you pound on her?
But like I said earlier, if it's bothering you I would open her up and check to see how tight the chain is before adjusting the doo. That way you will see what it's doing right now. Then once it's open loosen the DOO adjuster nut and carefully watch to see if it moves at all. If it does, then you will know if it's chain slap or piston slap. I always think the worst and open her up......a few minutes or hours beats walking for days......lol.

I was afraid youd say that and confirm my solution.

i am also guilty of assuming the worst and diving back in. i like to check it at least once a year for my own peace of mind anyway
