#1

Timing chain replacement on 2010 GMC Terrain 2.4L engine
is it absolutely necessary. It’s cost $2,500
Why does GM cover the smaller engine but not this one which is creaky a manufacturing problem


#2

Why do you need to change it? Is there a problem with the timing chain?
There was only 2 reported problems on carcomplaints.com about broken or stretched timing chain.


#3

If you want the engine to run and not randomly self destruct… yeah, you need a good timing chain.


#4

Parts and labor breakdown please?
Your motor is running? Noisy?


#5

What are the symptoms that led to this recommendation? Does the engine have to come out for this work to be done? The price quote seems way, way too high.


#6

The car is 9 years old with an unspecified number of miles.So; how many miles on it?

Timing chains usually wear due to not changing the motor oil often enough and/or running the motor oil chronically low.
So; how often do you change the oil both as to miles and time and how often do you raise the hood to check the oil level?

Once a chain is worn this generally means the rest of the engine has some wear also.


#7

This is the timing chain set for your vehicle.
