    Another timing chain down 😔

    Hi all my 2005 rxp just stopped with fault code p 0344 showing I took off my valve cover to see my timing chain snapped.
    The motor has been rebuilt 2-3 hours prior and charger rebuilt with new washers.
    If the workshop that did these repairs won't help I will be trying it myself.... how hard is it is there a step by step thread I can use
    Any help would be appreciated thanks

    absolutely get a shop manual and the special tools they describe for locking the cam and the crank at top dead center.

    This engine will Required to be torn completely down. the timing chain is the first thing you put on the crankshaft before you lay it in the Cyl Block. The valves need to be check & you possibly have broken gear teeth in the PTO Cover. Broken chain causes a Mess........

    aside from a full tear down your going to want to check your valves as well to see if any are bent.

    make sure you buy a IWIS stamped chain as the replacement. do not cheap it here. You'll also want new flywheel bolts, head studs, new valves even if yours are fine and an OEM head gasket. Buy the parts I listed and your rebuild will last. Also get that charger rebuilt. Washers do not mean it's rebuilt. Means the washers were replaced and in the grand scheme of charger reliability, they mean absolutely dick.

    I can feel your pain. I snapped the timing chain on my 06 RXT a couple months back which bent 10 of the 12 valves and damaged a piston

    Had to do a complete rebuild

    What causes the chains to let go normally?

    usually supercharger failure, or anything else coming in contact with the chain.

    My chain snapped at 55 hours and I have no idea why. The SC was fine, as was everything else, well maintained, etc...... Sometimes shit happens I guess
