What is a timing chain?
The timing chain has a very important role as it ensures that engine valves open and close at the proper times during each cylinders intake and exhaust strokes. Unlike a timing belt which is a toothed high-quality belt made of rubber that runs outside of the engine; a timing chain is made of metal and runs inside the engine as it needs to be lubricated by oil.
Do I need to change my timing chain?
A common misconception is that timing chains are a lifetime component but this is not the case. Timing belts have set replacement intervals typically between 40,000 and 100,000 miles depending on the vehicle. However, because timing chains are lubricated by the engine oil, their level of wear can vary depending on how well serviced the vehicle is. Poorly serviced vehicles have been known to have their timing chains fail with as little as 50,000 miles. Although well serviced vehicles can typically expect to get longer life out of their timing chains, it is important to understand that they will still suffer wear over time and need to be replaced.

Because the timing chain has such a fundamental role in the workings of the engine, once the timing chain fails it typically results in engine damage.
What are the symptoms of a bad or failing timing chain?
Common signs of a fault timing chain includes:
  • Engine misfires
  • Metal shavings found in the oil
  • Rattling sounds from the engine 
Although the above symptoms are a useful indicator, its important to note that many clients report no symptoms at all before the failure
