I have a 2016 2.0 diesel ingenium engine.
Hi, after having my timing chain replaced my car is now loosing coolant at a silly rate, from max to min in around 20 minutes of driving.
I also now have an oil leak where the gear box meets the engine, it seems to be coming out of a very small hole. Neither were there before I took the car to the garage, I'm going to ring them tomorrow but would like some more information on what exactly the garage would have to do on the engine to change the chain.
The invoice doesn't mention any coolant etc, so does the replacement procedure require draining coolant by removing pipes etc to gain access to the chain.
Any information would help incase the garage denies any responsibility.

Hi, welcome to the site.

Did you have a water pump change at the same time? Also what miles you done to warrant and early cambelt change?

No mention of water pump on the invoice, the chain had apparently stretched. The chain is apparently a lifetime item the garage told me.
The car has 47000 miles but there is apparently no mileage limit on the chain.

Unfortunate having to have a chain done, they tend not to be designed to be changed, so quite a major job, sounds like they haven't got everything sealed or tightened correctly, but that should be down to them to sort.

We had ours done and I initially thought it was an engine out job but it doesn't look like its been out, thinking now it could have been drivers arch liner out and get to it that way, maybe not even having to take the strut off but not sure if they even did it that way

I'd suggest that ever doing a cambelt or chain then the water pump should be done at the same time. Otherwise what a false economy.

Thats whats made me think that they maybe hadn't sealed the water pump correctly. If you've lost that much water you may now have head gasket problems.

I was just hoping someone would know the steps taken in replacing the chain, i. E workshop manual steps etc.
I don't want to ring them tomorrow and they basically deny any of the new issues that have appeared 10 miles after driving away from the garage.

Was it through a JLR garage or independent garage?

From the small diagrams it looks like it is located on the gearbox side of the engine, under the air box, though its not very clear from the images. It looks like the cam seals are leaking and coming out of a small weep hole at the bottom of the casing. I really hope they haven't damaged the headgasket when refitting the case (as mentioned as a caution in the workshop manual). I've not seen any mayo in the oil cap or dip or any contamination in the coolant tank, but that amount of lost coolant should be noticeable in the engine bay.

Looks like coolant pipes have to come off, surprised you can't see where that amount of coolant is going, hopefully they'll take it back in and sort it, looks like the crankshaft rear oil seal gets removed, so maybe needs a new one fitting, rather than reusing old?

This is probably the incompetence of the technician who done the work as if both chains replaced gear box is removed and coolant hoses disconnected and also probably damaged the seals on the front transfer box causing an oil leak
Have done 100’s of these and had to fix many when at JLR dealer due to
Poor staff workmanship
Now at my own JLR specialist
And still mopping up after dealerships cause customers loose faith in them good luck 🤞
