Guides and Rails
Timing chain guides and rails ensure that the timing chain stays on its pulley. They keep the chain from losing its tension, and works along with the tensioners to maintain the right amount of tension in the chain. They are usually made of heat-resistant plastic or sometimes, aluminum.
Over time, the guides and rails can fail due to improper tension in the timing belt. If you hear a rattling sound or if you experience a rough idle, it is a possible indication of a damaged guide or rail. Improper tension in the timing belt can cause your engine to misfire, resulting in a reduced efficiency. You should replace your guides and rails at the earliest to avoid subjecting your engine and its associated components to further damage.
