how often should timing chains be replaced on various MB engines?
Most of the info I have read on this board says 100,000 miles and/or 10 years. Seems that most of the problems come not from the chains breaking but stretch and/or the plastic parts associated with the timing chain system. The plastic gets old and brittle, breaks, drops into the chain/tooth and causes the big problem.
