    Default 2.8 v6 cam chain

    Just had slack cam chain diagnosed on my 2006 2.8 V6 vectra
    Z28NEL
    Only done 46K
    Rattle on idle, worse when hot.
    probably no internal damage.

    What would you recommend to replace when putting on new chain?

    Should be fine for life (which really means upto 100k miles) so I would go have a chat with Vauxhall... The V6's do tap a lot, so did my Ford Cougar, had both taken to garages to check for trouble but it is just the way they are.

    Always worth going to vx first if u have a good service history might get a contribution.

    I'd replace everything case it will be a massive job
