I have a 1998 bmw 540i 4.4 v-8 and i think the timing chain is making a noise. The car has 128000 miles on it. Is there any way to adjust it or does it have to be replaced? If it needs to be replaced does anyone know what this would cost? Like i said i think this is were the noise is coming from but not sure.
