Timing chain

Post by Knappettg » Fri Oct 11, 2019 5:39 pm

In for a health check yesterday, dealer said they thought engine was noisy and want it in for a week to investigate timing chain. 44k miles but still under extended warranty.
Has anyone else had this problem? What should I look out for?
Thanks.

I would be looking out for the dealer! Timing chains are not a usual problem area, if they spend time checking it out who is going to pay, you or the warranty. I have no problem with the dealer doing unneeded work on warranty but I would need a lot of convincing if I was paying.
If it was me paying I would ask for a second opinion, call at a different Jag dealer and ask if it sounds OK.

Dealer is paying. I got them to phone to check it was covered under warranty and only agreed to book in when they confirmed.
