Over the past month we have been seeing a high level of vehicles having problems with their timing chains and in the last week we have replaced timing chains on three vehicles from our Cardiff based vehicle garage pictured below.
Here is a recent tweet we have published showing the work we have carried out recently on a Peugeot vehicle replacing the timing chain.

If you are experiencing shuddering, juddering or heavy vibrations within your car or vehicle then this could be a sign that your having problems with the timing chain. The timing chain may need servicing or replacing completely to stop the vibrations and any further damage to your vehicle especially within the engine.
We are getting lots of timing chain problems from vehicle owners owning Peugeots and BMW vehicles. It was just last year that we wrote an article letting drivers know of multiple cases of engine failure on BMW 1-Series, 3-Series and 5-Series vehicles manufactured between 2007 and 2009 with all engine failures linked to problems with the timing chain.
Read the article we wrote on BMW engine failures linked to timing chain problems.
If your timing chain is damaged and is left unchecked then this can cause more problems for the vehicle such as engine problems, bent engine valves and a whole range of problems that can lead to expensive repairs.
Engine rebuilds and engine repairs can be far more expensive and in some cases it would be more cost effective to buy a new car. Facing these kinds of expenses can be a burden so if you are getting shuddering, juddering and vibrations coming from the vehicle and it is the timing chain at fault it would be better to replace or service it.
We can replace timing chains from £250. This price is far cheaper than buying a new car in the thousands or rebuilding the engine in the thousands and it will be less of a heavy burden for your wallet or bank balance to handle.
When you come to our garage for whatever reason from timing chain problems, MOT’s, general vehicle servicing then you are in good hands with us. We were recently audited by BOSCH Service and passed the audit with flying colours being awarded with a certificate of acknowledgment pictured below for car service quality and outstanding results produced from our Cardiff based service garage also pictured below.
