Mercedes Timing Chains

The timing chain on your Mercedes will likely need replacing every 80,000-100,000 miles; over time they stretch and/or the chain tensioners and guides wear out or break.

If your timing chain fails while your engine is running it will almost certainly cause expensive damage, possibly even damage the engine beyond repair, so it’s vital to make sure your Mercedes timing chain is checked regularly and replaced before it fails completely.

MBS follow the Mercedes servicing schedule irrespective of the age of the vehicle so your timing chain will be replaced at the point which Mercedes deem it necessary. However, it is important that you keep a lookout for any of the telltale signs that it may be failing and requiring attention or replacement before the recommended service interval.

These signs are:

  • engine management light illuminated
  • engine turns over but won’t start
  • metal shavings visible in the engine oil
  • engine misfiring
  • banging or rattling noises when the engine is idling.
