    check fuel pressure and spark quality. If spark is weak, check voltage to coil.

Despite all the fancy electronic battery testers available very few of them have the ability to detect a battery that has sulphation problems.

Timing chain for toyota yaris

What is the issue you are having? Chains do strech but to to the point of failure there should be some major performance issues. If there is a lack of oil changes this could cause premature chain failure.

Low oil level will cause the tensioner to not work adequitly.

Also I have replaced the VVTi controller on the intke cam a few times for lack of performance, always has trouble codes to go along with poor performance tough.
