Vvt timing chain

Does it specify which models and from what year to what year?

on a cold start you may hear normal noise like a light tap for a minute or so, cam gear noise is usually very loud on a cold start happening for just a moment or a tap at about 2k rpm, sometimes even having noise when reaches operating temp. mazda isn't the only 1's with cam gear issues for vvt either, rather shame.

and i think this is an owners extension for customer support warranty. 2007-2010 ms3/ms6

2012 Camry SE - K&N
2012 Cruze LT2 RS -K&N w/ airbox mod, forge bpv, scangauge w/blend mount
1991 Mustang LX 5.0 - Mac shorty headers, SR intake, SR pulleys, mac x-pipe, flowmaster exhaust w/tail pipe.. so much to build.

My 2.5L sounds similar to that, except for the starting up sound and not quite as loud... It just started doing this Yesterday (2/12/12).

Does it sound like normal after it is fixed, also how long time does it take to get it fixed?
