What you are guessing (timing chain) is on right track. In this case we have to look at the Variable Valve Timing Control system.
Valve Timing Control
1) The PGM-FI system monitors the Valve Timing Electronically Controlled (VTEC) System. By monitoring various engine sensors the ECM can determine when to activate the hydraulic components of the VTEC rocker assembly to engage VTEC and similarly can verify this function by monitoring the VTEC pressure switch.
2) The VTEC usually kicks in at about 3,000 to 3,500 rpm so if the PCM sees it's not working, it limits engine rpm. A code should set in the PCM but it might not be a 'hard' enough failure to set a code.
3) You have to be very careful when checking this system since actuating the VTEC system at the wrong time could cause severe engine damage. I would recommend taking it to a Dealer and letting them drive it with their scan tool connected so they can monitor the VTEC operation in real time and see exactly what it is exactly doing, or not doing.
Thanks and keep updated for any more query.You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Lost oil pressure in a 1999 540i and timing chain noise

from the book the oil pump is driven by a chain from the crankshaft. It is very possible that the oil pump has come loose and thrown/broken the pump chain. It will require a sump removal to check it out. recheck the oil level as what you read may have been a froth level . there is no reason for extra oil unless it was overfilled to start with or there is water contamination ( white /grey oil)

Well it could be something in the timing components but I doubt it.
Chances are its a connecting rod or piston.

Here's a helpful link for your vehicle, 2.5L engine:

For the larger engines, try this link for info.
From what I read, it doesn't seem that the timing chain is a regular replacement item.

For your question, the forum where this link resides would be a great place to search around. You'd be surprised how many people have already had a similar question. The link to this forum is:

If this has helped, please give me the appropriate thumbs up! Thanks, and good luck!

I have a 1984 dodge ram pick up with the mitsubishi motor and i was woindering if the timeing was belt or chain

1984 years came with the 2.0L, 2.6L gasoline and 2.3 diesel engines.

It's most likely a timing belt, but read further for more info. Recommended to be replaced at 60,000 miles (96,000 km) on gasoline engines and on diesel engines at 50,000 miles (80,000 km).

The 2.0 L Engine have two timing belts. One connects the crankshaft and camshaft, the second one drives the right silent shaft.

The 2.6L engine has a timing chain and a silent shaft chain.

Please check to see which particular engine you have and refer to the above for your answer.

1991 vw golf gti- RPM stop working!

judging by the amount of km it has done i would say the rpm drive is faulty, this measures the amount of rotation in the camshaft and shows the "revolutions per minute". when this goes faulty it stops the read out on the dial, so you want to be looking for a device that measures the speed that the engine is turning, if you have, replace it and it should solve the problem
