No.This almost 20 year old thread is regarding the EXTERNAL front hydraulic timing chain tensioner and the long expired 00M12 factory recall or TSB.
Notwithstanding the fact that not all recalls time out, did I say anything, anything at all to indicate that I didn't know this thread is 20 years old?
What I was asking about had nothing to do with the TSB. It was the guy who suggested this:
CDW..." suggests that changing the chain TENSIONERS at regular intervals (60-70k), much like a timing belt in many cars, will go a long way towards keeping the motor in good shape.
Is this ^^^ really a minimum $2000 job like someone in another thread said? THAT is what I want to know.
