What damage is there likely with my timing chain going today/ (2004, Grand Vitara LWB, 2.0L petrol).  It's done 112K, I thought a chain would do longer than that?

possible valves and piston damage....

and 100k is about right for a timing chain on those as theyre only a simplex chain

Surely not piston damage, is that what you normally get with the G. Vitara?

youll need to check for any damage....

ask a mechanic friend to explain how to check it for damage as itll be easier than me trying to explain on here

I've decided to put it to a garage, I was only doing 20 - 30 mph - hoping the low speed might have limited the damage, what you think?
