Timing chains should be replaced about every 100-120k

102,405

A timing chain, not a belt, should last the life of the vehicle, timing belts need cahnged at about 100K miles, unfortunately other things cause it too fail like not changing the oil, worn out chain guides and tensioners, etc. So if you hear a rattling or slapping sound from the front of your engine then it is time for the timing chain kit.
