Can you be more specific as to what the "timing chain issue" is?
I do not know the exact timing chain issue is, I will find out tomorrow morning when I go to the garage

Could not have put it better myself, just one of those thing isn't it. Oh well just an excuse to get a new car (trying to look at the positives)

Selling the car was due to happen just as this happened. Just need to replace the engine first now which is depressing me. Just my luck....
Umm. Before you while off and buy a new engine. Why don't you try draining all oil from engine. Run a liquid moly engine flush. Idle for 20 minutes. Then refrain and refill again. Do not take their word for it that the engine is toast. If there are metal particles in the oil circulating try to get those out and see if the vibrations and misfires goes away.

i wouldn't spend another penny diagnosing. The metal particles got in there for a reason and metal particles, well that's the signature thumbprint that its time for a replacement engine.

Metal fragments found all throughout the oil. Even if I drain all the oil out not all of the metal pieces will ever be removed, for me its not worth anymore hassle paying for more diagnosis the car has been off the road for 2 months. I picked up an engine today for 1600, getting fitted end of this week, trade in next week..... I hope
