i suppose it's time anyways(131k miles)to be changing your chains but i think you started this all because you heard a rattle IMMEDIATELY after you changed your oil.this happens as the oil leaves your top end via gravity since there is no oil to hold it up.probably a bad explanation but what you need to know is to prime the engine after changes in order to get the oil up there prior to engine running.i just went through this.do a search with my name and m.b. doc for the last week only(i think it's only 2-3 days ago).he mentions the crank sensor and from the diagrams i looked at it looks almost innaccessable
