Regular maintenance is recommended to avoid timing chain failure. Rattles may develop in higher mileage vehicles. Regular oil changes will help reduce the incidence of this problem.

    Timing chaing noise. Original owner. Car runs well and has had oil changes every 3-5K. Recommendation has been to replace chain and tensioner. I have not done that yet.
