BMW use timing chains in almost every model of engine that they produce. It is recommended to replace your timing chain before failure as repair prices can become very high from internal engine damage if left. The average life of these timing chains is 90,000 miles or 9 years.
If your BMW's engine timing chain snaps, the inlet and exhaust valves collide with the pistons, resulting in major engine damage. At this point it will bend the valves, shatter the rocker arms, snap and distort both camshafts and the camshaft housing. That's why it's important to pick up on the early signs of damage and get your BMW's timing chain checked before it's too late.
