No, it's a very common problem, but not all that serious. However, your car won't run without one.

Is it an interference or noninterference engine? Think timing chain has broke


Broken timing chain is a very large problem, if it happened while engine is running. Bent/broken valves and such. Makes a LOT of noise, and engine stops immediately.

Your question doesn't include make/model/year, so your question isn't possible to answer. Doesn't really matter, though, if your timing chain broke. That's pretty rare. Timing belt, yes. Chain, no.

How much to repair timing chain?


The internal damage is always the main worry with a broken timing chain, bent or broken valves, damaged valve stems and seats, I have even seen broken rings and split pistons and snapped camshafts, if the chain has stretched and the timing has jumped a couple of teeth you may be lucky, but you shouldnt turn the engine over even by hand until you find out the root of the problem, any damage may be increased tenfold. Unfortunately the timing cover will have to be released to find out before you do anything.

Causes may include:
  • Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear
  • Misalignment of timing belt/chain
  • Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken
  • Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken
  • Bad crank sensor
  • Bad cam sensor
  • Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor
  • Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged
  1. First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck.
  2. If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor.
  3. If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck

2001 saturn l200 will not start even though starter turns engine over.will the engine sound different during turnover if the timing chain is broken?


if the timing chain is broken it will sound different like there is no compression also this is an interference engine i think meaning the valves will hit the pistons if the timing is not correct,like in a broken chain or belt.you should check to see if you have spark at the plugs and if the motor is getting fuel.if not then each system will have to be checked out depending which is not working.

Timing chain the tension of the timing chan is broken


2.7L V6 engine? OK. is the chain broken or the tensioner not taking up
the slack? chain ok, just replace the tensioner, right side of engine, below
front of cylinder head. if it is the chain that broken, take it to a repair shop,
this will be and expensive fix, bent valves.
GOOD LUCK, RDJRP.

I have 97000 mile on my 05 Nissan Altima 3.5 SER the timing chain is making noise if I went over 7500 mile on synthic oil would that make my timing chain go bad the dealership said that is why it is making...


That's a load of **** they are feeding you.The timing chain tentioner has a fault and not tentioning the chian.I think you have done a good thing keeping it on synthetic oil.That causes less wear on moving parts than other oils.

Hi there,
you will need new upper timing chain and sprockets. Common problem on altima your year. Nissan has TSB for it. First they had us remove the upper timing chain guide, but after that, they had us replace all top chain components.
