With the book time not sure but your timeing chain is self adjusting so if it is that you would need to replace it. Not hard to do yourself, if you know how but if not don't try you maynot be able to start it again. I can tell you it would be a couple a hundred bucks for a mechenic to do for you, but if it brakes it will cost a lot more because it puts everything out and you need to start from scratch basically

Does the 98 cadillac deville have a timing belt or chain


My book shows 3.0 ltr 1997-01 "V" engine with a timing belt recommended change at 100.000 miles or 60.000 miles under adverse conditions. It shows 3 idler pulleys that should be changed as well and all the cam and crank seals should be replaced as well because oil is the main killer of timing belts.. While you may consider the extra cost to be a burden you will not think so when you get 100.000miles trouble free in the timing belt area . Do not replace any of the items and you run the risk of all that work again in say 30.000 miles

Problems with 07 tundra, engine light on, won't turn over completely without pumping gas pedal. Told it needs timing chain replaced


Timing chain controls the valve timing and causes running issues. It sounds like the chain and or chain guides are bad and you should NOT drive it that way as you can cause much more damage. Get it fixed and you should be fine. If it is a high mile car have them do a complete inspection of the vehicle before you spend any more money so you know if there are more issues.

I have a Nissan Maxima 2004 3.5 SE. It makes a rattling sound from the engine when I start the it or when the engine is running but idle. I have been told this is the timing chain that needs to be...


The rattle that you hear is the upper timing chain tensioners, they can be changed without doing the entire timing chain job, which is really expensive and difficult.

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
