Excessive timing chain noise, a rattling or ticking, on higher mileage cars may lead to timing chain failure, which can cause engine damage. There are upgraded chain tension guides with a steel backing to improve durability and a modified repair procedure no longer requires the removal of the cylinder head to replace the timing chain. Maintaining proper engine oil level and frequent oil changes are important to ensure the long-term durability of this engine.

She died the other night, I've changed the distributor cap & rotor. Its not the battery, and does not seem to be a starter or alternator. Anyone know much about the timing on this car? i know the chain is old but as far as I know it has not gone yet. Car has 237,XXX miles on it.
