The timing chain is an essential part of your engine that synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft and camshaft to ensure proper timing. Every time your engine is running, the chain is in use. Typically, timing chains are more durable than href=””>timing belts and should last approximately 200,000 miles, but some models of BMW have timing chain issues. The models we typically see for BMW timing chain replacement are the 1, 3, or 5 series manufactured between 2007 and 2011.
