Hi,

2005 BA Ford Falcon XR8 Boss 290

My ute has been at mechanics for a 24 hour period due to a noise like tick tick tick lasting 2-3 seconds when starting first thing in the morning.

Timing Chain Tensioners are the issue but being inside the engine wouldn't there be other components requiring replacement due to the age being 15yrs old, the high Ks done on ute & me being the 3rd owner?

We have been given a quote for just the Timing Chain Tensioner between $2500-$4500 is this a fear quote or should I go elsewhere.

Thanks

I don't know what it takes to get to your timing chain (ie, pull engine or done in place), and being a Yank I don't know the going rate for mechanics in the Land Down Under, but that does seem high. I would ask for an itemized list on the estimate and at least one more from someplace else.
