Replace a Spare part Timing chain kit – a defective one or if the limit of use has been already reached. Find out useful information about Timing chain kit

A timing chain kit includes the timing chain itself and other components connected to the part. The service life of the kit is generally around 150–180 thousand kilometres.

Contents of a timing chain kit

Apart from the chain itself, the set can contain:

  • idlers;
  • gears (idler and camshaft);
  • hydraulic tensioners;
  • dampers;
  • gaskets;
  • seals;
  • fasteners.


Timing chain kits synchronize the operation of the camshaft and crankshaft for more efficient transmission of torque from the engine to other parts of the vehicle. Fitting the whole kit together reduces the chance of premature wear of the parts. Replacing each component separately is also not always practical because it requires disassembling the engine and using special tools to fix the shafts.

Common problems with timing chain kits - causes and solutions

  • Stretched chain. If this happens one or more teeth slip when moving. This is most commonly caused by wear and tear of link ball joints or the failure of tensioners. The malfunction leads to higher fuel consumption, interruptions when the engine is running idle. Indicators of this problem are clanking in the engine compartment and the ‘Check Engine’ sign on the dashboard illuminating.
  • Chipped gear teeth. Mechanical damage is a result of improper installation of a new timing chain kit. A Symptom of this problem is clanking coming from the running power unit.
  • Worn-out gears and idlers. That happens because of the exposure to constant mechanical and thermal pressure. Low-quality oil and running an engine at a full speed regularly lead to premature wear. Symptoms of this problem are a clang in the engine compartment, reduced power and excessive engine vibration.
