timing chain on Grand Marquis
I know that I can get some help from the experienced and knowledgable people who post on this site. I have 1995 Grand Marquis, which I purchased new, it has 151.000 miles. I maintain this vehicle exactly as the manual. Recently it developed a noise. My mechanic after listening to it told me that it might be the timing chain. I received a call a day later telling me I could pick the car up. The mechanic told me that he went online and was able to get everything realigned and that the car was now quiet and running well. He told me that he didn't know if it would last 3 months, 6 months or a year and that I might want to think about either getting a new car or replacing the timing chain. I do not feel that I am in a position being a retired senior to purchase a new car . Should I purchase a rebuilt engine or have the timing chain replaced? I do not now have any problems, but I don't know how long this will last.
