    I think I need to replace my timing chain. It is a 02 2.7 with a 150000 miles. I am hearing a knocking coming from the front on the motor when I am idling. How hard is it to change and is there a way to check it without tearing apart the motor. Thanks.

    If you pull the valve cover off you can see the top off the chain. You can check to see if the chain has any slack in it. You can also shine a light down through the timing cover and look.

    Knocking from a worn timing chain? Get a second opinion from a trusted Toyota mechanic before you start tearing into it and replacing parts.
