The average kilometres that we replace timing chains on these engines are around the 100,000 km mark. In saying this we have also serviced these vehicles with well over 100,000km with out any signs of timing chain issues. Another common timing chain noise on the engines are due to tensioners failing. This is a main result of the engine being full of sludge and blocking the oil passages, The best way to maintain and avoid this issue is to carry out regular oil changes, We recommend every 5000km or 3 months.

Common noises & failures

Harmonic balancers - Broken or perished Variable Camshaft Timing (Camshaft Phasers) Torque Converter - Broken Flex Plate - Broken Variable Camshaft Timing actuator solenoid Camshaft position sensor Crankshaft position sensor Does your Holden have an engine check light on ? We can diagnose and scan your Holden with our obd scan tool to determine current or pending fault (trouble)  codes in the system. Our diagnostic scan tool has the latest available software updates including been able to read live data, OBD fault codes, Actuator and sensor testing & more.

Possible timing chain failures & symptoms

Engine rattle or noise on first start up & at normal operating temperature Noise from front of engine Engine check light on with trouble codes logged Engine performance, vehicle sluggish Poor or Rough engine idle (Engine Shacks) Engine vibration Broken or bent valves
These engines suffer from oil sludge build up in the timing cover and rocker cover areas, Around 1/2 or more that we carry out these repairs on are really sludgy which can result in a premature timing failure. As you can see by the above picture. We recommend running these vehicles on Premium fuel and to carry out more regular services. The manufacturer recommends to service these vehicle every 15,000km, In our opinion this service schedule is set to reduce servicing cost which in-turn results in better vehicle sales, due to lower service cost. From our hands on experience with these vehicles we recommend that 5000km oil and filter change will slightly increase your engine service costs but will drastically increase the longevity of your engine. Long term your expected lower repair costs will more than compensate for more frequent oil changes. It is not “rocket science”, it is as simple as the fresher you keep the oil in your engine the longer your engine will run without requiring repairs.
When we replace your timing chain kit on your Holden, we go one step further. We remove all the sensors from the front of the timing cover, remove the sensor seals & front crankshaft seal, Ultra Sonic clean your rocker covers and timing cover, replace all seals & gaskets. Picture above shows the end product of Ultra sonic cleaning your engine components. We also replace your engine oil & oil filter, radiator coolant at the same time. Once removed we can also inspect other components like your water pump, Belt & radiator cap, to ensure you will have trouble free motoring. We have the latest equipment and only use high end quality parts including genuine timing components, and if that’s not enough we back it by a life time workmanship guarantee.

Holden Commodore, SV6 & Rodeo VE & VZ V6 Engines are one of the most common timing chain replacements that UMR Engines carries out. Common Timing Chain Failures can be a result from lack of vehicle maintenance blocking the oil feed to the timing chain tensioners, and also a result of the timing chain stretching can cause an engine check code light on the dash. (Engine error check code of "P0018" description - Crankshaft Position Camshaft Position Correlation Bank 2 Sensor '1') Holden Commodore VE & VZ including 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 timing chain noise is common on LW2, LY7, LLT, LL1 & LFW Alloytec V6 3.6 Litre & V6 3.0 Litre Engines. Other common noise faults not related to the timing chain is a loose or damaged harmonic balancer, and a broken flex plate or torque converter in the automatic gearbox.
