Michael Your tensioner is bad. The tensioner should hold pressure so you do not have slack when you start the car. The fact that there is slack could be what has caused your problem to start with. The clattering sound on startup is the first sign you need a new tensioner. By the way those prices are high a new febi tensioner is @us$60 and a chain is US$80
Good luck this weekend.
