Question type: Maintenance & Repair

has anyone had to replace the distribution chain in the engine already ? I
have about 105.000 miles (166.000 Km) on the counter and the garage tells
me the chain has to be replaced but they already warned me that the car
should stay in the garage for 3 days ! What will that cost ??!!

Timing chain? That should be a one day job. Timing chains don't normally need replacing but apparently there are problems with the engine you have. If it is noisy you probably need to replace it along with the chain guides and tensioner.

I do know that the earlier CX-7s had problems but I thought they got it ironed out by now, but at 105K it could be the guides worn down and you should replace the chain while your in there. The shop should have given you an estimate on what it will cost before proceeding with repairs. These engine are very high maintenance, they need serviced regularly and on time.
