Default Caution - timing chain

Hello,
risk of serious engine damage due to design flaws chain tensioner.
If the motor rotates in opposite direction, the chain can jump:

That's what happens when you park the car with engaged gear.
Always use the parking brake!

For the first time the chain jumped at 65,000 km. Authorized service timing chain set again - but do not remove the cause. After one year - a ruined engine.

ENGINE 1.6l G4FC
