Ford Falcon 2009: Are there issues with the timing chain?

Asked by Kelvin

Are there any issues with the timing chain in the 2009 Ford Falcon 5.4-litre 290 kW V8 and does it have to be changed at a particular period in its life?

There’s no issue with the chain, they rarely break, but they can wear over time. If it does wear it usually becomes noisy, which in itself is not a problem. If it gets too bad the timing can be affected, and it’s best them to replace the chain.
