When it comes to your timing chain or timing belt, these parts aren’t actually replaced at intervals like other parts on your car which will be replaced or rotated during your regular services. The role of the timing chain is to keep your car engine and components working in harmony from the front to the rear of the vehicle. In many cases, your timing chain will operate things like the oil pump and water pump as well. Over time, your timing chain can stretch, the timing chain tensioner can fail or there may be other factors which lead to poor lubrication, and deterioration, of your timing chain.
Generally, this chain is highly durable as it’s expected to take a lot of punishment over the lifespan of your vehicle, however, if the chain fails then it needs to be replaced or you can risk causing more engine damage or fail completely to move the car at all.
Signs that your timing chain replacement should be booked in sooner rather than later include:
Timing chain replacement cost will vary depending on the make and model of the car. The average cost of a timing chain replacement will be between $1,000.00 and $1,800.00. If your mechanic has advised that your timing chain is broken and must be replaced in order for your engine to run, then the time to replace it will likely be between 3 and 4 hours.
They will begin by removing the engine accessories, draining the engine oil and removing the timing chain cover. The camshaft and crankshaft gears are then removed, along with the timing chain that requires replacement. All of the locations of these gears must be carefully noted by the mechanic. Once the new timing chain has been installed then the gears are returned to the original position. The front cover is then replaced and new engine oil inserted. The mechanic may or may not check oil filters at this time as well.
All of this can be completed on site and at your location to ensure that your next mechanical repair or service is as fast and convenient as possible. Our technicians are ready and waiting to attend your vehicle.
