    While Fiat Suggests 60K on Odo or 5 years as Timing chain replacement schedule, mine have done 82K+7 years. SA says it is good to go for some more time, have any of you run for longer duration without replacement and what are your experiences?

    Thanks.

    My last changed timing chain has now done about 66k kms (in about 3 years). Did not do an examination. But, there is no noise.

    60k is fine. But it seems the new fittings can last for 90 K kms.

    Reviving this thread, I have clocked close to 90K and still no abnormal sound from Timing Chain, however I am inclined to replace it in this service which is due. Any of you have ran the chain for more than 90K and if so, will the failure be abrupt?

    Considering the car is at the middle of its life cycle, why take chances. You shall be good for another 90k kms. INA is a good brand if you are looking at the aftermarket spares.
