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.

SOURCE: Does a 1993 BMW 318i have a timing belt or a timing chain?

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

SOURCE: 2004 toyota solara timing chain

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...

SOURCE: a boiling sound comes from where I put my anti freeze

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

SOURCE: does a 2002 Aerio have a timing chain or a belt?

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).

2.3 L below.

all answers, USA cars, this a USA forum. so.....
ever heard of the FSM the oem factory service manual?

is the chain making noises? if yes, the guide is bad, most chains fail due to that (as a true cause)
the FSM is here , just $4 to look , so ????
https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Products/1178-2003-aerio-service-manual.aspx

the clone is Alldata.com DIY, log in and read like we do.
google alldtata.com , bingo....

now the 2.3L (just the first half, ill let you pay $4 like we do)
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Remove engine assembly from vehicle.
  3. Remove oil pan.
  4. Remove cylinder head cover.
  5. Remove timing chain cover as follows:
    • Remove crankshaft pulley bolt. To lock crankshaft pulley, use special tool 09917-68221 (camshaft pulley holder).
    • Remove crankshaft pulley. To remove crankshaft pulley, use special tools 09944-36011 and 09926-58010 (steering wheel remover and bearing puller attachment).
    • Remove A/C compressor bracket.
    • Remove alternator belt idler pulley, water pump pulley and alternator belt tensioner.
    • Remove timing chain cover bolts and nut.
    • For reinstallation of timing chain, turn crankshaft so that timing marks on cylinder head and lower crankcase match with those on sprockets as shown in figure.
    • Remove second timing chain as follows:
      • Turn crankshaft to meet following conditions.
        • Key (I) on crankshaft is positioned as shown.
        • Arrow mark on idler sprocket (II) points upward.
        • Marks on sprockets (III) match with marks on cylinder head. Note that this step must be followed for reinstallation of timing chain.
      • Remove timing chain tensioner adjuster No.2 and gasket. To remove them, slacken second timing chain by turning intake camshaft counterclockwise a little while pushing back pad.
      • Remove intake and exhaust camshaft timing sprocket bolts. To remove them, fit a spanner to hexagonal part at the center of camshaft to hold it stationary.
      • Remove camshaft timing sprockets and second timing chain.
      • warning
      • After second timing chain is removed, never turn intake camshaft, exhaust camshaft and crankshaft independently more than such an extent as shown. If turned, interference may occur between piston and valves and valves themselves, and parts related to piston and valves may be damaged.
      • Remove timing chain guide No.1.
      • Remove timing chain tensioner adjuster No.1.
      • Remove timing chain tensioner.
      • Remove idler sprocket and first timing chain.
      • Remove crankshaft timing sprocket.
      • end.
    im not doing INSTALL, sorry.

Suzuki 2007 xl7 3.6 ...engine light flashing ...


ours only flashes for 1 reasons, it means the system is FUBAR

so bad you are burning up the CAT (its in the opr, guide)

so scan it...

why not state country.....????? here in USA we have OBD2 technology,, others, not till 2001,2006, or 2010... so? worlds a big place. no?

For sure your PCM is P\'\'$$ed off. huh?

our scan tool for 3.6 has Bxxx Pxxxx and Uxxxxx DTC codes.

we use a scan tool

is the chain screaming at you?????



but no matter.

the lamp glows for stored errors, called DTCs

the FSM covers this....

See TSBs on 3.6, bad chains?

Its a half baked, 3.6 GM engine in that XL7,

with an engine like that , youd be smart to own the FSM.

why work blind with any car with and engine like that.



read here.



http://www.suzuki-forums.com/2g-2007-xl7/41420-timing-chain-problem.html



and this, part, is a shock, (its a GM license Japanese engine)

note how SUZ has bad chains... in 2007 (my guess, china chains gone wrong, surely not Japanese RK chains, no way..... at all...... ISO 9000 chains are good.



Introduction

Although the architecture for this engine begins with a General Motors North Star design, the N36A has

been redesigned from the cylinder heads on up by Suzuki engineers for application in XL7. The entire

engine is manufactured in Japan, including casting of the cylinder block. The engines are then shipped to

CAMI for installation in XL7. (USA MARKET and CANADA)

This engine is unique to XL7 and is not shared with any General Motors

products that are assembled at CAMI.

Key features to will be covered in detail in this reference book include:

• Engine mechanical configuration

• Camshaft timing

• THROTTLE ACTUATOR CONTROL system (drive by wire)

• Variable valve timing (VVT) for intake and exhaust valves

Have you ever had your timing chain replaced? If not, then most likely your timing chain is getting loose and starting to tap on the sides of the housing. This is normal after probably 110-130000 miles, so you may consider this. DOHC engines don't have the lifter tapping problems that pushrod engines have. The reason you only year the timing chain tap at idle and when warm, is the metal expands when it warms up, making the chain slightly longer. At idle, chains and belts "flutter," or shake back and forth. when the engine speeds up, it puts more tension on the chain and it stops.
