Hi guys (I have a 2.0 Zetec Vin 3), and have a similar situation. I just recently did my timing belt with the help of a friend. I just finished putting everything back together this morning. Everything tight to torque spec...

The engine started on first try, but when I was giving everything one last inspection before the test drive, i noticed that the tensioner tension "wrench" marker was fluctuating back and forth and not staying to the correct tension that I had set similar to what its shown in this video (

The engine actually runs really smooth and there are no noises coming from the tensioner. The car actually runs smoother than it did, Just was wondering if its something normal.
