    The chain is a very common problem on the 2.2 directs and tends to jump or snap mine did at 55k also check the hp fuel pump have a look if its a siemans or continental as the pump failing is another massive problem if its a siemans then its not been replaced yet as the new updated version is continental also the fuel regulator tends to go but they are covered under a recall for free. Price wise to get the chain e.t.c replaced with labour it cost me nearly £600 the pump was £340 hope it all helps mate

    The chain itself isn't generally the problem. It's either the tensioner, lubrication nozzle, or a combination of both that tend to fail and then takes the chain with it.
