No idea. The counter stopped working at 99783 last feb 2003. And I may have done about 5-6k, car is not used for commuting to and from work.
Due to naivity, I changed the tensioner without checking the condition of the chains. Shop where I bought the new chains does not give warranty unless new tensioner was fitted as well. Makes sense vice versa too.
Do I have to re-tighten the cylinder head bolts after so many miles due to shrinking gasket?
