BMW 540i Timing Chain Tensioner Reviews

Timing chains were replaced by timing belts, but there is growing realization that both options have their set of pros and cons. That is why many car manufacturers, including the likes of BMW and Saab, install timing chains instead of belts. Use of timing chain requires installation of timing chain tensioner to ensure there is no slack in the chain when the vehicle is at rest. The BMW 540i timing chain tensioner performs the important task of preventing tooth skip when the speed of the automobile varies. Bicycle owners often find the chain moving out of sync when there is a drastic change in speeds. This can prove disastrous in automobiles and this is why the tensioner keeps the chain taut and controls vibrations, slack, and misalignment. A properly functioning BMW 540i timing chain tensioner ensures that the camshaft and crankshaft are in sync at all times. Timing chains are made of metal and are more susceptible to expansion and contraction due to heat and cold. The tensioner ensures that the thermal expansion and contraction caused by external temperature and engine heat does not throw the chain out of alignment. Lubricants and tensioners reduce noise and vibration to a minimum. Replacing tensioner along with the chain helps avoid frequent tinkering with the timing mechanism.

Very happy with the service I received from "PartsGeek". The part I ordered was shipped the next day, and it arrived three days later. I shopped around at other on-line stores, and "PartsGeek" had the best prices by far. I would recommend this seller/store to anyone.
