How much could I expect to pay to replace my timing chain/tensioner on my 94 325i? Private mech or dealer?
So, my timing chain is busted as well as my tensioner. I just need to know
average price of the repair and if this can cause more issues.
I am pretty sure your engine is interference in which case you most likely have bent valves which equals an expensive repair bill. Dealers are outrageous so look for a good independent Beemer shop.
Roughly, how expensive are we talking?
I can't say because I don't know the extent of the damage. Do your homework and find a good local BMW specialist.
I doubt a BMW Dealer will go near it because it's 23 years old. Your best bet at this point is probably to rebuild or replace the engine. HTH. -Jim
Depending on extend of damage ur talking from 2,500 to 5,000, just to give u an idea
