Ihave an 1995 Aero with 225.000 Km. and no noises from any chain. The chains in any motor are calculated for life (is a design condition for any motor). Is very rare that you have problems in two chains. Some Aero„s experience problems with the counterbalance shaft, but with a lot of Km. (I friend crash with 330.000 Km.) First I will demand a report from your mechanic and with it, I will write to SAAB (Sweden) to claim the cost of this repair. (SAAB finally payed my friend the new pieces) "FeelsSoGood" <feelssogoodnopsamatico.ca> wrote in message news:3lJD8.2115$w04.522915nopsam20.bellglobal.com... > Hi! > I bought my 1996SAAB9000Aero(at 108,000 Km). > Recently I had my car inspected by a dealer service(free 52 point > inspection). > The engineer said to me "The engine is making noises.
