Tapping noise in the engine, at first only at startup.

Took car into local mechanic, he quoted $4.1k to replace timing chain, guides, etc.

Is this in the ball park? Is it necessary? Car has 90k miles on it only.

Thoughts?

For a 05 Altima?
For that price you could probably throw another engine in it and be done.
How bad does it tap?
What oil are you running?
Curious if it is a carbon knock or something else

For that
price made think, why keep it?

Yes, 2005 Altima. Oil changed every 3000 miles. Barely driven only 90k miles in 13 years, its 3.5 L and driven like a granny by my wife. I use Pennzoil. It sounds like the 'old tappets' noise.

Thanks for your reply!

I say shop around.
I personally think they are great. I like the 2.5l better though. Both of mine have it and are pretty powerful for me. I like my v8s. So that says alot for me
