How do you know if a timing chain breaks? Can this be caused by an oil leak?
I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring, with a 2.7 V6 engine. My engine was making loud rattling noises for quite some time. My mechanic said it was due to a "lifter" and put some fluids in there to quiet down the car. Last year he changed out the water pump, but did not replace the timing chain. When I was driving home the car just suddenly died. I had another mechanic look under the hood, and he tells me the timing chain broke, and cracked the timing cover.
If your timing chain or belt breaks you would hear a loud pop or shatter and your car will stall tjen and there the timing chain is whats responsiblefor letting air and fuel into the engine
Is it also necessary to change the water pump
