Thanks once again to all who responded to my original thread on my doubts concerning the timing chain. (and the other threads that I read) Due to this forum I was able to go a shop informed and knowledgeable about this issue.

I just returned from the shop where I picked up my car after having the chain and tensioner changed. All other parts were in great condition therefore no need to change. Also, had the belt dampener (?) changed.


My car no longer sounds like a deisel and purrrrssss like a kitten!

150,000 miles and still going!

Thanks again.

P.S. Parts where only US$90 (Who said parts for this car were expensive) and labor charged was US$100 (I live in Central America.) Best US$190.00 I have spent in a long time.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

2006 - Suzuki Gran Vitara (2.0 L fully equipped) Like this car so far except for trying to put on the seatbelt.
1988 - 190e - 2.3L - 172K miles (It now belongs to the exwife)
1999 - Chevy Blazer LS Fully Equiped - killed it June 2006
2001 - Honda Civic EX - 68K miles (sold June 2004)
1963 - 220S - Dual Carb 6 cyl. (sold)
1994 - Yamaha WaveRaider (fun to ride)
