      I don't recall there being a scheduled timing chain service. Is it making noise?

      What car/SUV do you have? Try posting in that model's forum too for more responses.

      Well...assuming many have been quoted from $1400-$1600 to replace the oil pump bolt I'd say it's probably more. Almost the same labor is involved but more parts....I'm
      Sure it can be done cheaper by a VW shop (non-dealer) who's done it a handful of times already.
      With that said, there aren't a lot of shops that have done many of these. As stated its really not needed unless its making noise.
      I'm at 145k and no noise. You?
