Re: 2009 Fiat Ducato 3 Litre, Cam Belt or Cam Chain

The 3.0 litre engine has a cam chain - actually two, Drive is transmitted by two drive chains, a double 3/8" chain transmitts drive from the crankshaft to the oil pump/vacuum pump & high pressure pump shafts.
a single chain transmitts drive from the high pressure pump shaft to the camshafts.

Do these chains need to be checked for tension ?

Re: 2009 Fiat Ducato 3 Litre, Cam Belt or Cam Chain

I bizarrely had an argument in a local tyre shop yesterday over timing chains,
He swore that they need changing at 80,000 mile intervals!!
And he spent ages on his computer to no avail lol

Guess I must be nearly 4 chain changes behind then...

My understanding is if chain is quiet then leave alone, no checks needed, I'm at 308,000 miles (3 years old) and she's quiet and running sweet,
