Question about Cars & Trucks
My car is a Suzuki ario , if I stop at the light for 20 seconds the temper rise to the red zone.
Overheating and the condition of the timing chain are not related at all.You will need to check that your radiator fan is cutting in when hot. You will also need to check the thermostat and replace it if faulty.You may also need to check that you don't have any collant leaks by performing a pressure test on the system.Once you have completed those tasks, then you should have found the most likely cause of your issue.
By the way, timing chains are designed to last the life of the vehicle. Timing belts may be changed around the 50,000 mile mark to be safe.

Hi some of them have a belt but yours being the M43 engine is a chain, the only thing to listen for with them is chain slap or an rattling around the chain area, a bit of research on the M43 engine also shows that the chain should be changed after 100000 miles as they become weak, Just joined here and found this unsolved i know its a bit late but hope the extra info helps

You don't have to change your timing chain.. Timing chain last forever... If you don't hear any noise coming out from you engine, that means : nothing to worry about it... You can only adjust timing chain if there's any noise on the engine... Otherwise, just drive and go for fun... I have 2004 Solara and 110,000 miles already.. still runs great!.. My mechanic told me if I hear any noise like a chain noise, I have to see him for adjustment... I hope this message helps you...

Hi I am Vortash the first thing you should check is the fluid level ( water ) in the radiator bottle .. and the oil to see if there is any water in it if you have a heat problem the head gasket can leak allowing water to mix with the oil .. this causes the oil to turn creamy white and reduces it's protection to the engine .
The best thing for you to do is have the vehicle checked over now as if the head cooks you could be looking at a couple of thousand dollars for repair in this country The UK it would cost about a thousand pounds to have a head skimmed and the gaskets replaced due to overheating and at todays currency exchange thats a lot of dollars ..Have a compression test done on the cylinders this will tell you if you have a gasket problem , The readings per cylinder should be between 130 to 150 per cylinder any lower and you have a problem .. regards Vortash

Also known as a Liana in some markets, this may have either a "G" series or a "J" series motor in it. This can be checked by finding the engine number - either G16B123456 or J18A123456. The G series is belt driven, while the J series is chain driven (2 chains).

timing chains are not maintenance/wear items, they are not anticipated to fail because they don't suffer degradation from heat and fluids like rubber belts do
