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 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
