Default N20 timing chain failure? - 09-24-2020, 12:03 AM

Hey peeps, what are some signs of the timing chain guide failing in the n20 engine? I've read a lot of horror stories about the mechanism failing causing catastrophic engine failure. Is there a way to avoid this? Are there any aftermarket parts that are better? I really don't want to end up blowing my engine.omegle xender

The biggest one I am aware of is a whining sound.

I'm in the process of getting quotes on having mine replaced proactively. Once I get these back I will determine if I am keeping the car or getting rid of it.
