    Re: Help with timing chain plz!

    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?

    Check your oil level your vvt with low oil can give you symptoms like your timing chain is going.... If your chain had issues you would hear it slapping..
