i gotta change mine soon .. but im not paying for someone to do it for me .. does anyone know how to .. or has anyone done it lately ? and does anyone know where to find a chain for cheap but new. thanks and e mail me please
Id have them inspect the chain before replacing it. Timing chains can last a lot longer than timing belts. Timing chains can last well into 200K miles. If there is any decent amount of slack you might want to consider a new one, but I wouldn't think so.
I'll have to do a timing chain as well, hopefully before winter. When i checked out prices for the kit, they were reasonable, the 3 piece was $25, and the others ranged up to $75. According to the manuals I have, it doesn't look like too difficult a job. You don't half to get into the valve's, it's all on the front of the engine. Pull the radiator and fan, remove pulleys and then the timing cover (mine is a 2.5L) Biggest thing I'll need to get is the time to actually do it.
Thanks guys for all the help and responces :] I really apperciate it .. The other site people were really rude ... I have had the Jeep inspected before and he said the chain is starting to slip I guess in away and its getting lose and he said it would need to be changed soon .. So that's the only thing that has ever been wrong with it though .. I'm pretty happy about that .. It does have trouble changing gears when you first turn it on and in the winter ..But I prety much think if I bleed the clutch then that should fix it .. Well I will let you guys know how it goes .. And I really apperciate all the help !
