vehicle has 70k does timing chain need to be checked?


@cavalierbella , normally timing chains do not require checking or changing for the life of the vehicle, unless noticeable rattling, etc is noticed coming from the timing chain cover area. At 70k you should not have to worry at all, my neighbor has 266k and original chain still OK.


thank you very much


@cavalierbella ,Therese Southworth, if this answered your question, can you select it/choose it as so. Happy I was able to help.


I would love to comply but I do not understand what do
