Chevy Equinox timing chain broke at 50,000 miles
You can't check the belt, that's why they say it should be changed at anywhere from 50 to 75 thousand miles. Some do last past that point, but yours did not and it should have...
I'm sorry, it's NOT a timing BELT, it's a chain..... Generally, you can check a belt but NOT a timing chain.... Here's another prime example of WHY people purchase ASIAN cars! http://www.equinoxforum.net/index.php?topic=9930.0
What size engine is this?
Unfortunately, I think due to the passage of time, you're out of luck on this, BUT, it wasn't just Subaru cars that had oil burning issues in the period from 2011 forward..... Again, the timing belt is supposed to last the LIFETIME of the car! Now, you're going to have to tear apart the engine to replace this critical component....My advice, get rid of the car! http://www.archwayprints.com/uploads/latestFile1400872639.pdf
See this link a while ago... Again, this is DISGRACEFUL. https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t35506_ds673988
Trying to start something there Markw1952? Every single vehicle made has a problem of some sort.
Not Subaru's ;)
Hey F_O_R check this out: EVERY CAR HAS AN ISSUE AT SOME POINT. https://www.edmunds.com/recalls/subaru.html
Subarus have problems? IMAGINE THAT!
Of course Subaru cars have problems like other cars, but tell me .. How often have you heard about Subaru cars that broke their timing chains....? A broken timing chain is a huge problem.
AND, if you do hear about a broken timing chain on a Subaru, it's not at 50,000 miles!!!!
I have never heard of a timing chain breaking to begin with. The timing chain is just a part that failed because it got threw manufacturing QC checks. Not like GM makes this part, this would be supplied by a sub contractor. A broke timing chain probably is 1 in a million.
I am questioning it also, of all my cars I have had and I have driven them over 300 thousand miles and only once I had to change a timing chain, but now i have a equonix and they couldn't get the right code to show when check engine light came on, finally they told me it was timing chain at now 100 thousand miles which the light came on before it turned, took them a week to get my car back which was last night and cost over 3 thousand and now I see I am leaking oil now and I did not have this issue before ugghhhh
