Right now I have the timing belt covers off. I want to start or running the engine with the covers off for 30 min to see any oil leaking or any unusual noise. Does this mean I have to install everything back except the timing belt covers?

For diagnostic purposes it’s fine to run without the covers. Just make sure nothing will get in the way of the belt.

For 30min of running? hell yeah... Actually that is a lot of time to keep the engine idling with no airflow.

Yeah, That is why every component of the T-Belt job gets done at the same time.

I found it out after I watch YouTube to check for leak hydraulic auto-tensioner. I didn’t see any oil on the tensioner housing but when I stick my finger inside the cavity yeah there is oil in there.
