Timing Chain Replacement in Albany CA

Timing belts need replacement, but timing chains?! Unfortunately they do. While timing chains typically last much longer than timing belts, a timing chain may require a replacement. The typical reason for replacement is that the timing chain has stretched and can no longer provide proper timing for the camshaft and the crankshaft. Some vehicles, in particular Audi, are known to suffer from stretched timing chains.

At Adams Automotive Albany we offer comprehensive car maintenance services and repairs, including timing chain replacement. The good news about timing chain replacement is that unlike timing belts, timing chains can give you warning when they are about to fail:

  1. Rattling noise when idling is an important sign that your vehicle’s timing chain may need replacement.
  2. Engine misfires or does not provide normal acceleration power
  3. Metal shavings found in engine oil can indicate timing chain problem

If you notice any of the above symptoms, call Adams Autoworx Albany right away and bring your vehicle to us for a professional inspection. We will ascertain if the timing chain is indeed at fault, and if it is, our nationally ASE certified technicians will complete timing chain replacement and get you vehicle back in top shop.
