Thanks for your reply! This could be the ticket. I do happen to have a very slow but noticeable oil leak from the other (driver) side of the engine, from the chain cover. I've been meaning to open it up to see what's going on. But that's the other side of the engine from where it seems the noise is coming. Bottom line: I better look at my tensioners pronto.

A question: if I have a failed or failing tensioner, is it a big BIG problem, like I shouldn't drive the car? Or do you think it's only failing to tension the chain when I hear that sound? I ask because the 911 is my daily driver and I won't get a chance to dig into it until this weekend.

Cheers
