Customer Question

HONDa CRV 2.2 TDi 2005 76000 miles cam belt or chain
Submitted: 1 year ago.
Category: Honda
Expert:  Matt replied 1 year ago.


this engine is on a timing chain that's meant to last the life of the engine ( 150,000 miles)

if you can hear it 'tinkling' at hot idle then its possible that it the tensioner may need replacing

but providing the oil change interval is kept to and the correct oil used then you should have no issues
