Question.

Does anyone know if a timing chain needs to be replaced after doing x amount of klms?

I've had my car a bit over 2 years, don't know much history of it, brought privately, came with a logbook when it was a company car, I've driven over 70,000 klms since.

Any info would be welcome

Cheers

Should be fine. Many cars have in excess of 500,000km with nil issues.

Normal roadgoing cars should be fine - EF/EL/AU cabs >800 000kms have had no chain probs.

Just did myne at 250,000 and the only issue was the guide the tensioner pushes on was cracked and I guess probably couldve broken if I hadve left it... Probably wouldve done another quarter million before that was going to happen. ;)
