hello im looking at buy a 2006 charger that has a hemi, should i be cautious about the timing chain? Ive heard a few didnt stories about the timing belt snapping or needing to be replaced around 100,000 miles, will it be the same with the timing chain? is there a way that i can tell if its damanged or needs to be replaced? what else do i need to know or look for when buying this car? im buying from a private seller.

    these eng have valve guide issues. my wifes car dropped a valve and blew the motor up. thank god we had extended warranty cost me 100.00. would cost you approx 2000.00 to 5000.00 depending on damage. also wiring under intake burns and cause alot of drivability issues.
