Timing chains usually last longer than timing belts. The main reason for this is that chains are made from metal, while timing belts are made from rubber, which is not as strong.
Should I replace my water pump with the timing belt?
The idler pulleys, tensioner, and water pump should always be replaced when the timing belt is replaced.
2. In most cases, the timing belt drives the water pump, so replacing the water pump at the same time is recommended.
3. This is also recommended by the manufacturer.
What does a noisy timing chain sound like?
Timing chain noise is most noticeable during cold startup, when oil pressure and oil flow are at their lowest. Excess slack in the timing chain can cause a rattling or even a clanking sound if the slack is severe enough to cause the chain to contact the timing chain cover.
How do I check my timing belt?
I can’t do this.

Why does my car make a ticking sound when I accelerate?
In most cases, oil pressure, exhaust leaks, spark plugs, or the valvetrain are the cause.
2. Each of these problems becomes apparent when accelerating, as the sounds are amplified when the engine’s RPM increases.
3. Fixing these issues won’t cost much, but be sure to determine the cause of the problem as soon as possible!
