Thank you very much for your advice Steve, its very informative. Not to belabor this issue, but has Mercedes updated the tensioner? If part of the problem lies in lack of oil pressure in the tensioner at startup, which cases the chain to slap around, I wonder if that is typical of the design of this tensioner, or if new ones are desinged better. Saab 900s have tensioner issues, and there was an updated tensioner that was supposed to be installed in all motors.
