    '07 cobalt LS 2.2 L ecotec; 70K miles Car had chain noise on startup, so I decided to replace the tensioner. This was straightforward, until I took the old one out. It had come apart, and when the housing and spring were removed, the piston appears to have fallen. From what I've seen of this...
