chains


When someone refers to chains in a car or van engine, they are generally referring to the timing chain and here we will explain more.

The timing chain

Depending on the make and model of your vehicle, the timing chain may be used as an alternative to a cam or timing belt. The timing chain will control the closing and opening of the engine's valves by turning the crankshaft and camshaft at the correct speed. However, as with other crucial components, the timing chain is subject to wearing out and it will need to be replaced. Generally, timing chains are replaced every 40,000 miles, or up to 100,000 miles, and the vehicle manufacturer will specify exactly when this should be done. For those who may not be aware, the timing chain is made from metal, it resembles a bike chain, and runs inside the engine. It will need to be lubricated by the engine´s oil and unless there is a problem with it, it does not need to be replaced until it is scheduled for doing so.

Timing chain plays an important role

The timing chain plays an important role because when it becomes worn or stretched it will slow down the closing and opening of the engine valves, which could lead to serious engine damage. Also, a worn timing chain will affect the ignition of the vehicle so you may find it difficult to start. In addition, you may experience a sluggish engine response and there may be odd noises from the engine bay - these are issues that will need to be dealt with quickly. It's also important to maintain oil levels in your vehicle to help ensure the timing chain's lifespan will not be unduly affected and that the engine will not be damaged. You'll need to change the engine oil regularly and not use poor quality oil when doing so, or even have an empty oil tank. The potential symptoms that your timing chain is failing will be the engine misfiring because the valve timing isn't quite right, or there may be a rattling sound from the engine when you are idling. It's important not to ignore these issues because should the timing chain break, particularly when travelling at speed, you will cause serious engine damage by damaging the valves and pistons which could lead to an expensive repair.

Should you believe there is a problem with your vehicle's timing chain then it might be a good idea to take your vehicle to a professional for the potential problem to be diagnosed properly. The professional will then be able to carry out a repair and replace the timing chain with a quality part to ensure the vehicle performs as it should do when back on the road.

Searching for chains or a timing chain

If you are searching for chains or a timing chain for your vehicle, then it's important that you source these from a reputable supplier and that the quality part complies with your vehicle manufacturer's criteria and the MorePartz site can help.
