Mercedes Benz Timing Chain Replacement Details

The timing chain keeps internal engine components in sync with each other by causing valves to open and close at the proper time. It is durable and generally needs no maintenance. However, timing chain failure can result in serious internal engine damage.

Common Symptoms:

  • Engine may stall or run rough
  • Noise in the front of the engine (a rattle or rumble, associated with engine speed)
  • Check Engine Light may illuminate and set misfire, camshaft sensor, and crankshaft sensor codes

What the Mechanic Should Do:

  • On certain engines, the water pump is driven by the timing chain. It should be replaced if the timing chain is replaced.
  • When replacing a timing chain, replace the whole timing chain set, which includes all of the chains, the gear set, the tensioner(s), and the guides
  • An engine may have multiple timing chains; replacing all of the chains and their related components is recommend if one chain requires replacement
  • Using high quality, fully synthetic engine oil may extend the life of the timing chain and related components
  • Sometimes, a defective water pump, a loose or defective harmonic balancer, a defective drive belt tensioner, or a cracked flex plate can exhibit symptoms that may be misdiagnosed as a worn timing chain assembly

Everyone was very friendly and customer oriented, but the store did not have my tire in stock. As such, I had to wait over 3 hours for my service to be completed.

I have been very pleased with the level of service that I have been receiving at this Tuffy. So far, the mechanics have been honest with me and my family with regards to what repairs are needed.

by - Verified Customer May 09, 2016

They were nice and it was quick.

by May 06, 2016

I had issues all the way home, 900 miles home, I was driving from Florida to Northern Indiana. My cam sensor was out, a $50 fix, and I wasn't notified that was the issue. I took it to a shop back at home and they fixed it within two days. There were points the sensor kicked on and off. I was only able to drive 55 mph at points. It was miserable.

by - Verified Customer May 03, 2016

Tire didn't get fully balanced still,l had vibration.
