A Quick Look at Jaguar S-Type Timing Chain Kit Problems

You can't have a bad timing chain in your Jaguar. When it goes bad, all your efforts to keep your engine running in good shape will just go down the drain. It's a core engine part that makes the complicated process of combustion possible, so having a good Jaguar S-Type timing chain kit under your hood is extremely important. Most Jaguar timing chains are built to last, but they will also show signs of wear over time. A bad timing chain will adversely affect the performance of your camshaft and crankshaft. In most cases, it will destroy your engine completely and make your vehicle inoperable. To help you find the causes behind timing chain problems, read the troubleshooting guide below.

Rattling sound

When the timing chain is loose, it will create a ratting sound that can be heard when you start your engine. Usually, the sound is more noticeable during cold starts when the oil pressure is still low and the tensioner is not yet engaged. The sound will continue for a few minutes and gradually disappear once the engine is warmed up. To test the timing chain for looseness, use an automotive stethoscope. This will allow you to hear unusual noises from the timing chain much better. Rattling, scraping, and metal-to-metal slapping sounds indicate a loose timing chain. Have it checked by a mechanic and purchase a new Jaguar S-Type timing chain kit if necessary.

Decreased engine power

Loss of tension can affect the timing chain's performance, causing decreased engine power. Without adequate tension, the valve timing will be thrown off the track and hamper the combustion process. This can also affect ignition timing, fuel delivery, and distributor performance, resulting in acceleration problems. You'll notice this lack of power when you step on the gas pedal or warm up your Jaguar. To check for tension loss, turn the crankshaft and observe the rotor's movement. If the crank has to be turned more than half an inch to shift the rotor, then you need to replace your timing chain and gears.

Preventing Timing Trouble: Jaguar S-Type Timing Chain Kit Maintenance Guide

Generally, Jaguar S-Type timing chains are tough and built to last for hundreds of thousands of miles. In fact, you only need to replace it when it breaks, snaps, or stretches. If you're lucky, your timing chain will even last the entire lifespan of your Jaguar. This part requires very little maintenance, but it doesn't have absolute immunity from mechanical failures. To ensure the timing chain performs at its best for a long period of time, adequate lubrication and tension is needed. So you basically need only two things to keep your timing chain in good working condition-engine oil and tensioner. But it doesn't stop there. Read the tips we've listed below to help you maintain your Jaguar S-Type timing chain kit.


Change oil at recommended intervals.


Strictly following the recommended oil change schedule for your vehicle will not only benefit the timing chain, but also your entire engine. Regular oil changes are required to ensure the timing chain won't run on dirty and contaminated oil. Deteriorated oil quality can cause premature timing chain wear, so don't skip out on your scheduled oil changes.


Regularly change the oil filter.


Along with routine oil changes, regular oil filter change is also required to keep your timing chain up and running. A dirty oil filter will not have the capacity to trap contaminants and tiny particles effectively, so oil changes are useless unless you change your filter on a regular basis as well. Contaminated oil can cause the timing chain to wear out quickly, resulting in valve timing failure and expensive replacement costs.


Use the correct oil.


Not using the oil specified by your engine manufacturer can compromise the performance of the tensioner. This will prevent the tensioner from maintaining the correct level of pressure necessary to match the increase of your engine's RPM. A decrease in pressure can cause vibrations that can damage the timing chain's metal links and pins. When this happens, the timing chain will eventually break, resulting in total engine failure. To prevent loss of pressure and keep vibrations at bay, always use the correct oil and replace the tensioner if it gets damaged.
