I was always told that preventive changing of a timing CHAIN is not necessary because it doesn't just fail without warning. (like a timing BELT does) It will start making a small noise that will eventually get louder, and that you will have plenty of time before things become critical. I'm by no means an "expert", but I know that many of you ARE. So I'm interested in your thoughts.
