Timing Chain Replacement

Hi all, it has been a while, I have been very busy with school and just haven't had time to say hello.

Today has been n eventful day of sorts. I just hit the 100,000km mark on my 2006 300C, yes a lot of driving.

I just wanted to know if and when the timing chain has to be replaced?

How much does it cost?

My assumption it is not covered under warranty.

Thanks in advance.

The owners manual doesn't say anything about replacing the timing chain for the 5.7 hemi. But it says to replace it at 105,000 miles, or 175,000 KM, on the 2.7L and 3.5L car.

I would call the dealer and ask.

I doubt that it ever has to be replaced as the 5.7L is an overhead valve engine with the cam in the block. Timing chains for overhead cam engines are much longer and often lighter in construction and may eventually need replacement.

notes

The 5.7/6.1 are real timing chains and will last at least 100k miles or more depending on maintenance and driving style.

No service required. Your car will throw a code if the chain becomes stretched or wears too much.

Note that almost nobody uses chains on OHC cars anymore. They save money by using a timing BELT which requires periodic replacement and sometimes DAMAGES the engine when it breaks!

This is becoming less common. The GM 3.6L DOHC, Nissan 3.5L/3.7L DOHC and I believe the Toyota 3.5L uses chain as well.

The Chrysler 2.7L also uses chain drive to the cams. The 3.5L is by timing belt, I believe.

1.8L Sentra's use chains, for crist's sake! I wish everyone would just get with it and use chains like the olden days.
