    Maybe the engine is running hotter due to the heatwave, hot engine = hot oil = thin oil

    When did it last have an oil and filter change?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 150

    Year : 05

    Mileage : 74000

    Default

    mine was doing over 142k on the same chain, only need to be chained once they turn noisey, (sp?). Also checked the oil level? when these get low they become tickety although not low enough to bring on the warning light

    There are no reccommendations afaik as to when the chains need replacing,they are designed to last the engines lifetime,however long that may be.
    When thay start to rattle it usually means cream cracker3ed tensioner.i know the early 2.2 dti had a problem regarding oil jets blocking.causing premature wear and failure,but not the 2.0dti.......Hth.

    I believe your thinking of the 2.2 PETROLS and not the DTI's, afaik no DTI's had issues with oil jets blocking up.
