2001 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
I just purchased a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 (gas) 5.9L 4x4 truck. It has 170,000 miles on it. It runs great but the owner who sold it to me did not know if and when the timing chain had ever been replaced. He was at least the second owner.
Should I just get the timing chain replaced or is this chain expected to last beyond this type of mileage? Sorry but I am not mechanical and I have received a wide range of answers from friends and " experts" locally.
