Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.The labor to remove and replace the timing chain calls for 4 hours and the chain lists for $64 . You labor and parts pricing my vary a bit due to the shop rates and parts pricing in your area. If the chain is noisy and its backfiring I would address the chain first and see if resolves the jerking issue you are having.

I will replace timing chain. I also wonder if the spark plugs should be changed as it is running rough under acceleration. When idling you can hear a ticking noise.

It is a good idea to go ahead and replace them if that has not been done already.
