Timing Gears problem

7 posts in this topic

Dear  !

I have a 2010 C200 CGI (W204/M271) . it has 70,000 km.

I recently had car serviced at a local shop and they informed me that need to replace timing gears kit (image attached).

Could any body here help me to know where sell this kit ?

Any and all information is appreciated!

Hi, 

Usually, if the timing chain stretch (becoming longer) .. or the cam gear wear  out (gear tip no longer sharp but rounded off)  .. during cold start, the engine will sound like diesel .. that is the classic early tell-tale sign for M271...  

 else usually do not need to do anything t .. 

Did the WS tell u, what prompt them for the conclusion?

Hmm .. .to be able to see cam gears condition ... they need to open up the Cam cover .. 

During normal car service they really open up cam cover? sound fishy .. ..

 

BTW, gears worn after 70Kkm is a bit too early .. .usually it can last 120~150Kkm..

It is a known issues on M271 engine. Timing chain and gear material not that compatible resulting in wearing of the sprockets. There should be engine code come up if indeed it is an issue. You might want to go for 2nd opinion.
