2006 Kia Sedona Question: How long can a loose timing chain drag on the housing before requiring repair?

 

Question

I recently bought a used 2006 Kia Sedona with 94,000 miles on it. Now I realize that my timing chain is defiantly loose at startup for a few seconds until enough hydraulic pressure builds up on the tensioner. Now that I know the problem should I have the engine pulled and have the timing chain and the tensioner replaced or is this an issue that can be ignored for 50,000 miles?

    Nobody knows for sure! Better have it fixed before it brakes and destroys the engine!
