My 2009 Mazda CX-7 has covered 60,000 miles - am I likely to run into issues with the timing chain?
I've just discovered that the 2009 Mazda CX-7 I've owned for over 6 years has a timing chain rather than cam belt. It's covered 60,000 miles and I'm now worried that issues with the chain, the VVT or turbo are highly likely. Is it possible to check the state of my engine or is it time to sell?
Presumably the 2.4 petrol? If the oil and filter have been changed regularly you shouldn't have any trouble with the chain. But it would be a very wise precaution to replace the turbo bearing oil feed and oil return pipes because they can get blocked with carbonised oil, starving the turbo of lubrication and cooling.
