Timing Chains

From £495.95

Timing chains are generally more durable and require less maintenance than timing belts. However, they can still experience problems over time and may be more complex and expensive to replace if they do fail.

It’s definitely a cheaper option to repair the timing chain before it fails and this is something that we can do for you at Williamson Bros, so do get in touch if you have any timing chain-related concerns or questions.

What are common timing chain problems?

  • Stretching: Timing chains can gradually stretch if they are not regularly maintained or lubricated properly. This can eventually affect the performance of your vehicle and potentially cause damage to engine components.
  • Wear and Tear: Like any moving part, timing chains can suffer from wear and tear which can cause the timing chain to become loose leading to issues with engine timing and performance.
  • Noise: A worn or loose timing chain can produce rattling or clanking sounds which is often a sign of timing chain wear; get in touch with Williamson Bros straight away to prevent further damage.

It is essential to sort out any timing chain-related issues such as noises from the engine or reduced performance from your vehicle, as soon as you notice them, to avoid costly repairs and ensure the continued reliability of the engine. Regular maintenance can help prevent many timing chain problems so get in touch with Williamson Bros or pop into our workshop in Gorebridge and we’ll be happy to help.
