We are your BMW engine experts. At RMP Motors we have the experience and the latest equipment to repair the timing chain issues of your BMW N20 or N26 engine equipped vehicles. Many BMW’s from 2012 to 2017 have the 4 Cylinder Turbo engine known as the N20 or N26 such as the 228, 320, 328, 428, 528 and and X series SUV’s with the 2.8i designation.
If you have noticed rattling noises or heavy vibrations from the engine and or your check engine light has been illuminated, then you may have an issue with your vehicles engine timing system.
The BMW N20/N26 4 cylinder engines have timing chain issues due to the timing chain tensioner, chain and the plastic chain guide’s failing.
If any of these timing chain components fail, it could cause the chain to loosen or even guides to snap apart. If this happens your engine could suffer serious or catastrophic damage.
Over the years with normal wear and tear the plastic guide becomes brittle to the point where they break apart.
Consequently, small pieces of the plastic guide break off and end up the oil pan and oil pump creating oil pressure issues and further internal engine damage. The debris can also find the way into the crankshaft drive sprockets which will cause the chain to skip. If this happens the camshafts and crankshaft fall out of sync and can cause catastrophic damage to your engine.
We can inspect your timing chain system and perform the necessary repairs and replacements on your BMW N20/N26 engine to help you avoid any incidents. We only use latest OE parts to maintain and repair your vehicle to keep it running as good as new.
It is recommended to replace the timing chains and guides as a preventative measure to keep your BMW running perfectly.
