    2001 will be pre the fitment of the updated oil jet which causes the chain to snap .. any car after 2002 had the new jet fitted at factory, best thing is regular oil changes, check the service history . also make sure cars cold and start listen out for any rattley noises comming from the chain area .. dont worrie if rattle is comming more from back of engine this is just loose exhaust manifold which just needs tighting up (very simular noises)
