When should I change my timing chain on a 2011 sho?

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Robert. Thanks for writing in today. Although it’s vital to change belts and hoses on a regular interval (as they are designed to wear), there is no recommended replacement for a timing chain. In theory, the timing chain should last for the lifespan of the vehicle. However, there are components like timing chain covers, gaskets and front seals that should be replaced before a vehicle reaches 200,000 miles. If you have an oil leak coming from the front of the motor, it’s likely coming from these sources.
