I am replacing my timing chain (major one and 2 minor ones) for 1525.00 and I was wondering if someone could PLEASE tell me what else I should replace I've read somewhere that you should replace tensioners and something else to save money from labor....I'm not that familiar with cars so someone please help me my car is a 2005 cts 3.6l with 76,000 miles on it and I'm replacing the chain because I've read tht they can stretch and or break without warming....please give me info
At 76,000 miles? Is it making any noise? My car has 108k on original chain, runs like a champ. I've always heard it'll start making noise long before it breaks. So I'd say why spend the money if there's nothing wrong. Maybe someone with some more experience will chime in.
Thanks for posting bro..see I was wondering if there would be a sound/sign that I'll notice to change my timing chain or will it just break/get loose without warning because I can't afford a new transmission
And to answer your question it makes a very low clicking noise while it's on and in park and when im driving and I accelerate at a fast rate the clicking noise sounds faster but once I'm in 2n gear or above I can't hear it....could it just be the fan? Or does it sound like the chain?
