Like an expensive watch, your engine has various parts moving in sync with each other. If these parts were to lose their timing, serious engine damage can occur. It's all up to the timing chain to keep things running in order.The parts mostly involved are the crankshaft, pistons, camshafts, and valves. If your engine's chain has been running for around 100,000 kilometers, it may be time to change it. Soon, you may start hearing grinding noises inside the engine bay.That's the chain starting to loosen its hold over the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets. When that happens, it's definitely time to replace the timing chain. Otherwise, if the chain breaks and the engine loses its timing, the valves and pistons may hammer each other to pieces.You're going to spend a fortune on engine rebuilding if that happens. Don't sweat it, though. Chains for all engine types are available here at Carparts.
