I was going through my copy of the TIS 2000 and there is a Technical Service Bulletin which reports that the timing chain on the 2.2L (Z22SE) engine can break due to missing / insufficient lubrication of the timing chain. :shock:
A modified tensioner and lubrication nozzle have been introduced into production as of the following engine-No: 11065400 (March 2002) to rectify this possible problem.
I have a 2001 Astra SRi 2.2L so I am concerned!
Have any Astra 2.2L (Z22SE) owners experienced any problems with their timing chain?
What are the signs and symptoms that the timing chain is going to break?
