Do I have to check my Corsa's timing chain?

Recently I bought a opel corsa 2007 with 219000km but I don't know about timing chain, do I have to check it and how?

Our answer:

Hi Hadi,

There is no way for you to check the chain. Generally the only sign that there is an issue is an unusual noise from that part of the engine, sometimes only on start-up when the engine is cold. Another symptom can be engine warning lights and other erratic issues. Either way, if you have any doubts, best to get the car along to a good mechanic as soon as you can for them to check it out.
