We are looking into buying a 2007 Buick Lucerne CXL v-6 with 89,000 miles. What type issues are we looking at? I noticed it has a timing chain, when do they need to be changed, if it breaks what type of...


A very nice comfortable automobile:) No concerns with timing belts...no other major concerns...they hold resale value well don't they:) At 89,000 miles you early maintenance concerns will be have the brakes been replaced...have the front rear struts been replaced? Tranny fluid filter serviced yet? Also should replace plugs and wires by 100,000, also look at wear on serpentine belt...coolant serviced? These are minor concerns, but will definitely affect your enjoyment of this premium Buick:)

after the repairs needed and the associated cost you will be above value for the vehicle, if you havent heard it run and know it needs a timing chain you run the risk of buying a car with twisted valves. resulting in the need of an engine

When to change transmission oil in manual transmission.car has 130000 miles and also timing chain change


Transmission oil is recommended to be changed every 50,000 miles


Unless the timing chain is making a noise or broken teeth, they need not be replaced

Timing belt should be changed every 60,000 to 105,000 depending on the vehicle

Merces benz c230 timing chain replacement procedure


so it takes some Pin pullers, or a litlte bit of messing around witth proper sized (heavy duty) bolt to pull the pins, i cannot seem to find the timing marks on mine once i got it offand want to put back on, i have a chilton and it doesnt help. if you buy the 100 -200 dolar shop manual from bentley it would probably be quite simple :)

pull, pins, timing cover, water pump, solenoid, etc. to get to timing cover, uppe and lower,pull valve cover, and loosen cam (exhaust side) to get chain off. :)

Does the timing chain need to be replaced on a 1995 Chevy Astro?


Hello g_venegas,typically the timing chain should be replaced between 60 - 80,000 miles, of course the condition and how the vehicle was treated makes a big difference, so with 215,000 miles every day is a blessing regardless of how great shape the rest of it is, the big issue here is that if if fails during operation the repair cost will be considerably more than the timing chain, this of course is a decision you have to make. hope this helps you :) good luck
