Timing Chain Repair Prices

What is a Timing Chain?

A timing chain is metal chain which works in a similar fashion to a bike chain in its function. The timing chain runs inside a car engine and is responsible for moving connecting the crankshaft to the camshaft to create motion.

The timing chain, like almost every car part, is a vital part which need to be work at optimal capacity in order for a car to be driven properly.

What does a Timing Chain do?

The timing chain is specifically responsible for connecting the crankshaft and camshaft within the engine, which are in turn, responsible for opening and closing the engines valves.

How complex is a Timing Chain repair?

A timing chain needs to be replaced between 40,000 and 100,000 miles and problems are not uncommon, especially for cars with high mileages.

Like every part used to construct a car engine, the timing chain is subject to natural wear and tear which means, eventually, it will need to be replaced.

If your engine oil is low, this will speed up the process of degradation for the part as the build-up of heat and friction will damage the part.

Furthermore, there are a variety of parts which are responsible for keeping the timing chain in the correct position including the chain guider, chain tensioner and chain silencer, which are also liable to suffer from wear and tear.

If these parts are damage, the timing chain will invariably become unsafe as well.

What will happen if my Timing Chain breaks or is damaged?

If the timing chain in your car is damaged or broken, the engine may feel sluggish, be low on power and or completely unable to start. As the timing chain wears down over time it becomes longer as it is stretched. Once this process has taken place, the ignition and valve timing becomes troublesome.

There are also a few signs that other parts surrounding the timing chain are damaged. If you can hear rattling, whirring, whining or buzzing, there is a good chance that the timing chain guide or timing chain tensioner are broken and responsible for the offending noise.

What is involved in a timing chain repair?

The average price in the UK for a timing chain repair is listed at the top of this page though the cost of a repair will depend entirely on the extend of the damage, the age of the car and the model of the car as well.

What can I do to prevent timing chain problems?

Changing your engine oil regularly will give you the best chance of keeping the timing chain in the best health and using premium oil will improve the help even more. In a well maintained engine, a timing chain could last for up to 300,000 miles and above.
