Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
Hello – your engine does use a timing chain, and that engine is not an interference (valve-to-piston) engine. However, having said that – if the chain breaks, especially at anything above an idle, the broken chain can jam the crankshaft sprocket, bringing a lot of rotating mass to a halt suddenly, and most likely with damage to something in the timing chain area of the engine.

Worn timing chain guides, and a stretched timing chain (or weak tensioner) will cause all sorts of metallic slapping or tapping noises. If the engine has jumped time, it may not make much noise, but as you have noticed, won’t start either.

Many engine parts suppliers make timing chain kits which include all the bits (3 chains, 4+ chain guides, multiple idler pulleys, a new tensioner, etc. By all means, buy the kit – a better value, avoids not having all the right bits, updated tensioner, etc. Check the problem codes that have turned on the Check Engine light – they will call out an "out of time" engine problem.

I would recommend having a Check Engine Light inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.

The 3.6L engine in the applicable model years is subject to timing chain stretch and crankshaft Reluctor ring movement causing trouble codes, engine surging and possibly an engine no start condition. A wide variety of trouble codes may set to include P0008, P009, P016, P017, P018, or P019.
The 3.6L Engine found in the Cadillac CTS, SRX, STS, and various other GM vehicles is a great engine. But they have issues with timing chains, needing replacement. … This is an interference engine, 4 people think this is helpful.
That`s why it`s recommend to change the whole timing chain kit includes timing tensioner, guide, sprockets and even cam phaser vvt gears all together since it can save the labor hours and cost.
I just found a 2011 Chevy Camaro for $5,000. All it needs is a timing chain.
A malfunctioning timing chain can cause the engine to misfire, run poorly, or even seize up, leading to catastrophic engine failure. As such, it is crucial to ensure that the timing chain is regularly inspected and that any issues are addressed promptly to prevent costly repairs and potential damage to the engine.
The 3.6 liter V6 engine (production code LFX) is a six-cylinder engine produced by General Motors for use in a broad range of vehicles. It is part of GM`s third-generation high-feature V6 engine family, and has been succeeded by the LGX.
A broken timing chain will cause an engine to not start or fail while driving. If the belt is already broken, the engine won`t have enough compression to start. If it breaks or jumps while driving, the pistons will be damaged from contact with the valves. The valves themselves will bend and potentially ruin the engine.
These are both incredibly important parts of the engine, and with a P0008 code, it means that bank one of the camshaft or crankshaft is incorrectly positioned. P0008 is a specific code that indicates misalignment in bank one of your engine; the equivalent code for bank two is P0009.
P0008 is a generic OBD-II code indicating an issue with the engine control module (ECM) detecting a variation in the mechanical timing between the crankshaft and bank 1 camshaft. The ECM uses sensors to detect the position of the crankshaft and camshaft(s).
A lax timing chain, or worse, a broken timing chain with loose parts within the engine, will produce a rattling sound when your car is idling. This rattling sound is typically most prominent while the engine heats up and disappears after some time.
Recommended Services. Hi there – yes, a worn or stretched timing chain, weak timing chain tensioner, or worn timing chain guides can cause misfiring, cam timing problem codes, low power and generally poor running of the engine. Most, if not all, of these problems will illuminate the Check Engine light.
And, if the timing chain becomes loose, you can get ready for serious and costly problems. If the timing chain breaks or jumps while you are driving the car, the pistons will be damaged from contact with the valves, the valves will bend, and potentially ruin the engine.
The 2011 Chevy Traverse`s 3.6L V6 is known for timing chain issues, faulty piston rods, bearing failures, and excessive oil consumption. HVAC issues and power steering failure are not uncommon, as are malfunctioning window controls and water ingress.
Despite its rather lengthy list of problems, the GM 3.6 V6 is known to be quite bulletproof. The v6 power plant is powerful and tech-laden. Its Achilles heel though has to do with its engine oil changes.

Replacing timing chain 2004 Mazda 6
ANSWER : Hello – if the mechanic waited until the car was re-assembled after the water pump job to suggest timing chain repair, then "yes", s/he was not doing you any favor. Doing the timing chain repair separately is essentially repeating the labor. There are a number of related parts involved in a timing chain service: the timing chain itself, one or more timing chain guides, a tensioner, an idler puller(sometimes), and various o-rings and seals. Many parts manufacturers package these as a "kit", and the technician simply orders the correct kit for your engine in order to be sure they get all the right bits. I recommend a timing chain service performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, and give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.

I have a 2010 camry. I just recently replaced the engine with a 2014 camry engine. Now I have Four engine lights on. I replaced on
ANSWER : If you swapped the engine from a vehicle that is 4 years newer than the car is then you are going to have electrical and sensor incompatibilities that may not be able to be fixed by just a few sensor replacements. There were many changes in computer and emission related items between 2010 and 2014 engines. I would recommend having a mechanic like one from YourMechanic come to you and compare the two engines to isolate the possible differences and see if the problem can be fixed.

I have a 96 Ford ranger with cel p0340 I have recently done a timing belt, engine runs great replaced cmp sensor cel still on
ANSWER : Hi There,
This may happen for a couple of reasons. First, check to be sure that the connections to the sensor are clean and not faulty or broken. Secondly, check to be sure you replaced the correct sensor as there are two camshaft position sensors in some applications. If you need further help with this, please reach out to us here at YourMechanic as we are always here to help.

My Mercedez dealer is saying I need to replace the maniinfold intake as my car time to time engine light is turning on and I feel
ANSWER : Hi there. It really depends on the actual source code that you’re receiving from the dealership that will determine whether this issue is caused by the actual intake manifold or perhaps the manifold gasket being damaged. In most case, it’s the intake manifold gasket that needs to be replaced.

Timing belt needs to be replaced
ANSWER : Your engine is an interference motor and will get damaged if the belt breaks. You can contact another mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, who can check and replace the timing belt for you.

if an engine is rebuilt, does that include the timing chain also?
ANSWER : Hi there. Why was the engine rebuild performed? That model year Camry does not have adjustable lifters; they are hydraulic and depend on proper oil pressure to operate properly. These lifters also have to be primed with oil prior to installing during an engine rebuild. There is also the camshaft carrier that has small oil ports to feed the camshafts and lifters with oil. If the technician that performed the rebuild applied too much sealant, one or more of the oil passages could be blocked or restricted resulting in the noise you’re hearing. Then there is also the possibility that the noise could be in the lower part of the engine or an accessory. I suggest having a qualified technician perform an inspection to avoid replacing unnecessary parts and determine where and what is causing the noise. Your Mechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with an engine is making a noise inspection.

need a way to retain the timing chain
