    Question 2.2 Timing Chain Price

    Hi everyone

    Basically I've been trying to find out if the recall on my timing chain has been done, Ive phoned vauxhall and they have told me that my car never had a recall and never needed one, but as mine is an early 2001 engine, I suspect that it did need one, and still does..

    Anyway I've decided im going to get it done, for piece of mind.

    How much should I be expecting to pay? As I have heard different Vauxhall garages charge different prices?


    Cheers, Tom

    IIRC it'll cost about £400-450 at a dealer, and obviously slightly less at an independent garage

    They should come to about £150ish - from www.autovaux.com (genuine GM parts too), and mention AOC when you speak to them


    off the top of my bonce, you need

    cam cover gasket
    timing chain kit
    crank oil seal
    front cover gasket
    new crank bolt
    oil
    oil filter
    sump washer

    you can do it without changing the oil, but while it's in bits, you may a well
