Now a days, timing chains are usually good for the life of the engine. However, timing belts are usually recommended between 60,000 and 100,000 miles.
It will be good to know if your engine is "interfering" or "non-interfering".
That means, if the belt breaks, will it destroy the engine (interfering) or not (non-interfering).
God bless your efforts.
when the chain got older it got loose due to the tensions so it will make your car`s engine sounds louder but if the chain cut your engine will be dead and in some engines the piston will hit the valve destroy each other so don`t underestimate that timing chain it is really critical it is had for you to replace it cuz you could miss the timing settings go to shop
I would guess that you have already checked this but many years ago I got ahold of a bar for my stihl .029 super farm boss that had a slight warp in it. It would work fine at most r.p.m.'s but when you ran it wide open it would toss the chain. It took me awhile to find this and on mine if you wern't watching very close you would never see it. I hope this helps you some, Good luck and thanks
Honda element has a Timing Chain, and Honda doesn't even recommending looking at it till something like 110,000 or 120,000 miles.
However, it is this an "interference" engine, meaning that if the chain or belt fails it could destroy the valve train and even the pistons. Because it is an interference engine. I plan to change my chain at 100K, since I expect the car to go at least 200K but don't expect the chain to last that long. Normally cars has Tune ups scheduled at 30K, 60, and 90K. As the rule of the thumb at 90K Tune up mechanic shops recommend timing Belt or Chain to be replaced. We can go for longer taking the risk.
your book will say the service interval for the chain. It called a belt. Its usually done around 80,000. No adjustment can be made. It gets replaced. If you fail to replace it it can break and destroy the engine.
the timing chain tensioner is hydraulic and either out of adjustment or defective. You need to remove the timing chain cover and reset the mechanical correlation between the crankshaft and the camshafts. also the other ignition time marks are on the crankshaft harmonic balancer and the cam cover. Do not crank the engine with the timing out of sequence or you'll destroy the engine.
