Thanks... Will the timing chain last as long as the life of the engine or does it require replacement?

the timing chain also need to be replaced for it is elongated after a certain period of time.

this elongation could affect the timing gears (camshaft) and sharpen the cogs (teeth).

any deviation on the timing of about plus or minus 10 degrees calls for a replacement, or else you have to do it every 100,000 kilometers.

it is an easy job which takes 2 hours with the right special tools and trained mechanic.
