Welcome to Just Answer and thank you for asking your question. I look forward to helping you fix your vehicle.




I will try my best to help you and in order to do that, I need you to describe the issue in as much detail because I only know as much about your vehicle as you have told me in your post, so my answer will be based on what you have posted.

My goal is your satisfaction and I ask that you not accept unless you are satisfied, but if you are satisfied, please accept so I can receive credit for my work and time. Positive Feedback is greatly appreciated and bonuses are always welcomed.

Both of these have a timing chain.

I don't have any slipping or any trouble, however, I am a person that likes to correct b4 a problem if there is one. Can this timing chain be checked, or do we wait to see if it goes out?
The only way to check is to remove the front cover and check it. Chances are they are fine. These chains rarely give troubles.
