S 500 (W140), three quick inquires for the pro...

Dear fellow members: a few quick questions about a 1996 S 500 (W140 Longwheel Base) with a 119.980 V-8 engine:

1/- Is this model susceptible to timing chain failure like previous 380/500 V-8s ?

2/- Is the engine wiring harness prone to slef-destruct like it did on the M104 engines (S320/E320s) ?

3/- If the air conditioning evaporator was dealer replaced about a year ago, could it be likely to fail again in a near future (2 to 5 years) ?

Simple YES or NO answers to each question would be greatly and deeply appreciated. Any comments on something else that could be trouble on this V-8 would be welcomed. Thanks in advance.
