Timing Chain Questions?
Hey ya'll I have a question. What's the benefits of doing the timing chain fix? I don't know what it sounds like but my car doesn't use too much oil unless I use the recommended 5w-30. Also I kinda hear a chatter on my caddy could that be the timing chain.

For now its been doing good on the Walmart Fully synthetic 10w-30.

Mines getting worse too. I've been thinking about trying 10w-30 instead of the 5w-30 just to see if it will calm down a little lol... Mainly because I don't have $1,500 to get it fixed at the moment...

Well it calms down the oil consumption definitely cause I've gone 1,000 miles and no consumption yet. But for a temporary fix idk. It might work.
