It is not true in case of MJD engines at least. FIAT recommends 60k KMS replacement for timing chain and Maruti recommends change somewhere near 100,000 KMS or when it starts making noise.

I sold my SX4 petrol around 1.4 lakh kms but timing chain was not touched.

For MJD/DDIS it cost around 14,000 INR to replace timing chain which makes it very expensive compared to timing belts.

Are you sure that this is mentioned in the user manual of the Maruti ? Because, my memory says it's written as lifetime for Swift DDiS.

Hello Amalji

It might be written lifetime but from practical point of view I have seen timing chain getting replaced in many swift/SX4 DDIS engines at MASS. On enquring I was told that around 100,000 KMS timing chain assembly starts making noise and solution is replacement.

For FIAT MJD, I believe it is mentioned in maintenance schedule to replace at 60K.

Can anyone help me with the price associated with the front Disc Rotors of Ford Classic??
I think brake pads also need to be replaced if we change the Rotors if I'm right, please hel me with the expense for all.
