A friend and I were talking about cars a couple of days ago and I happen to mention that my 2000 Bull has over 240k miles on it. He does not drive a Taurus but he said if he were me, he would consider having the drive chain replaced. What do you all think? Would appreciate your thoughts on this. Thanks.

There are only two "Drive Chains" that I can think of. The timing chain and the chain in the transmission that acts as the final drive. I have never heard of either failing, and it's probably not worth it to change.....

If you have a 240k mile transmission that works fine, don't fix it till it's broke :)

I wouldn't be all that excited about pulling a trans with 240k on it just to put a new chain in it - it makes more sense to put in a new or low mileage transmission if you're going to go to that much trouble.

Supposedly the timing chain can stretch and the timing would be a little off. It's nothing to worry about though.
