Some vehicles are not equipped with a Timing Belt, but instead utilize a metal timing chain.
For most of these applications, removal and replacement of the timing chain is not advised unless there is evidence of an issue or underlying problem, so we typically don't replace chains at a given mileage interval.
However, there are some engine models on the market that exhibit an abnormally high failure rate, and for these vehicles, we may recommend replacing the timing chain to either solve or prevent problems that may arise.
Some examples of Timing Chain equipped engines with frequent issues are:
- Ford 4.6 and 5.4 Litre V8
- GM 3.6 Litre V6
- Nissan 4.0 Litre V6
- Volkwagon/Audi 2.0T
Even your vehicle doesn't have a timing belt, give us a call at 719-694-2201 to see if we have maintenance recommendations for your particular make and model.
Proper maintenance is critical to ensure the lowest cost and best reliability.
