    Default Signum 2.2 direct petrol. Timing Chain

    hi

    new here so apologies if this is a stupid question

    my 2004 signum has never had the chain replaced, it's got 33K on the clock - i know these things are bad for snapping, should i be getting it replaced soon?

    also what should i expect to pay for this should it need done ??

    thanks again !!

    The 2.2 petrol engins around 2001 failed due to incorrect oil feed to the chain. Any 2.2 after that time will have the modifed oil feed as yours is 2004 , you should get around 200k before it need changing. Auto data does not show any change intervals. Like bmws which are all chain does not need changing until it rattes.

    unfortunately not : (

    just with the car now well over 5yrs old and a nightmare last week with the exhaust (all good now though) i just wanted to be checking if there is anything that should be getting done and timing belt/chain is an obvious one that i should be checking....
