This is the first time I am ever hearing all these complaints about timing chain problems on 300e engines, maybe its the weather ( lol) Are you also replacing oil pumps and oil pump chains, they wear also right. I hhave asked people in this field for over 20 years and they even admit that the 103 chains dont wear like the other cars ( v8 ,104 , 119 ) . In fact they have never seen one break. Well it all goes back to maintenance and how often people change their oil is my guess.
