When starting the car the vehicle make loud rattling noise and the entire car shakes. I took the car to the mechanic and he said it is the timing chain issue. I can't believe my car has 82,500 kms only with regular services.

C200 1.8L

  • Automatic transmission

at cold start, engine rattled first few seconds and engine light turned on the dash.. Fault code po340 cam shaft position sensor came up after diagnosis with scan tool, Replaced the sensor & same error came back up, took car back to mechanic,he diagnosed that Car had stretched timing chain issue and as a result had to replace timing chain, 2 cam sprockets and tensioner at 70k on the clock after replacing the above, car went back to normal with no faults have others been through same issue?

pretty disappointing that this happened as car was regularly serviced and has travelled only 70000..
