Suzuki Ignis 2000 1.3L 16v 83hp
Hello , I own a suzuki ignis I 2000 1.3 16v M13A front wheel driven. I bought it last year and the original owner told me his wife drove it only in the city , from home to work and so on. Now it has 110k km so I assume almost 100k were done in the city , I already have damage in the gearbox but it's not that bad. I drive this tiny car everyday and it's working well, I changed the oil with 10w40 , I also changed the gearbox oil and the most important thing , it's not smoking and doesn't burn oil at all , also the engine is dusty , no oil leaks everywhere I looked.
What I don't like is the timing chain noise, when I do a cold start , the engine is pretty much smooth and silent , the chain noise comes up gradually as the engine warms up , when the engine gets to the optimal working temperature then the noise is quite obvious. The noise is only when the car is idle-ing , when I rev it up then it goes away.
Is is possible for a timing chain to wear out so fast, only in 100k km? Should I change the entire package or there's another less expensive way to fix this?
