Re: Time for timing chain? (96 Marquis 60k)
I'm assuming that is miles. While a timing chain is made entirely of metal, they don't last forever. They do weaken over time, and they commonly stretch. Will they last longer than 60k? Probably will - but do you want to chance being stranded, and chance potential engine damage? They aren't terribly expensive, and it's good preventative maintenance (I'm big on preventative maintenance, and any car I've owned has typically been trouble-free and long-lasting).
