Timing Chain


Risk Warning

Driving a car with a timing chain problem can be dangerous and risky. In a Volkswagen car, the timing chain is responsible for synchronizing the camshaft and crankshaft so that the valves and pistons can open and close in the correct order. If the timing chain is worn or stretched, it can skip a gear, causing the valves and pistons to open and close out of order. This can cause the engine to run poorly, or even to misfire or stall. Furthermore, a misfiring engine can lead to an increase in fuel consumption, increased emissions, and, in extreme cases, engine damage. This can cause extensive and expensive repair bills. Therefore, it is important to have the timing chain checked and replaced as needed.

What is a timing chain?

A timing chain is a metal chain that synchronizes the turning of the crankshaft and camshaft so the engine valves open and close at the appropriate times during each cylinder’s intake and exhaust strokes. It is important for the engine to run smoothly.

How much does it cost to repair a timing chain?

It depends on the type and condition of the timing chain, as well as the parts and labor needed to replace it. Generally, the repair cost for a timing chain ranges from about RM2,000 to RM4,000.

How do I know if my timing chain needs to be repaired?

If your car is making strange noises, or if you’re seeing oil leaks near the timing chain area, it might be a sign that your timing chain needs repair. A technician at our shop can examine your Volkswagen up close and provide a more detailed assessment.

Do I need to replace the entire timing chain or only certain parts?

It depends on the amount of damage to the chain. If it is a minor issue, only certain parts may need to be replaced. If the damage is more serious, the entire timing chain may need to be replaced.

What happens if I don’t repair the timing chain?

If you do not repair the timing chain, your engine won’t be able to accurately control the timing of its valves, leading to low performance and a decrease in fuel economy. In some cases, it could cause major damage to your engine.

Can I repair the timing chain myself or do I need a professional mechanic?

If you are not experienced with engine repairs, it is best to have a professional mechanic at Volks Maniac Garage do the timing chain repair for you. It is a complex procedure that requires tools and knowledge about automotive engines, so it is recommended to leave it to the professionals.
