    Default 2.2i direct timing chain

    Got my 2.2i direct signum last thursday from a local car supermarket 2006 76000m FSH
    As soon as i got home i found this forum and i found out about the recall on the fuel pressure switch and got it booked in with my local vauxhall dealer to look at
    took the car down today and VX replaced the offending article under the recall
    they then advised me that the cam chain had some noise and in there words they "reccomended replacement"
    They let me have the original copy of the jobsheet advising this for me to take to where i got the car from
    I have just took the car back and showed them this piece of paper and they say that they have never heard of cam chain problems on the 2.2i direct i told them to google it
    they said it was the main dealer just trying to get extra work in!
    although i have 3 month warrenty from the car supermarket and a further extended 2 year insurance warrenty i am still a little worried i told the salesman that if this timing chain snaps in the next 3 month i will be gunning for him personaly as i have told him about the POTENTIAL problem beforehand
    Having just read the policy it states that belts are covered if they are changed to manufacturers standards so my question is what it the reccomended time to change a chain on this engine as if it goes this warrenty mignt not be worth the paper it it written on
    Also should i be worried "Personally i cant hear anything but im no mechanic"
    what should i do with regards to the garage i bought it from as i feel i have just been fobbed off

    any ideas welcome


    thanks in advance

    I thought this problem was for the z22se engine only as it had a oil jet undersized which blocked up (recall to fix this)and the 2.2 direct z22yh engine did not suffer this faliure.
    If you can't hear any rattling noises then I expect he cannot either, enjoy your car and stop worrying

    i dont know much about these engines either ... but if people do have z22yh's i would be looking into changeing the oil more often possible looking at getting the tenstioner changed or at worse getting a new kit fitted ...

    The tensioner has been revised. Mine went recently and the field remedy advises to fit the one that's fitted to the 2 litre turbo.

    Fair enough i think about regular oil changes, but if its not rattling would you say its in ok condition? Do they rattle first as a rule?
