2010's are beginning to show up on the forum with timing chain issues.
09's do show up in higher numbers (chain issues)
2010's- were 'corrected' (oil passages were made bigger from whats been posted)... but now with vehicles hitting the 80,000 mile mark--- it seems folks are getting the codes which point to a timing chain stretch (which is really the chain wearing- and making it seem loose)
But in my opinion- these 2010s and up (as we have seen a few posts from 2011's to 2013's).... I think is mostly related to owners not checking the oil level in their cars.
this leads to low oil levels and sludge buildup.
Oil in these engines is used for more than lubrication. Its also a hydraulic fluid of sorts-- as its used to 'move' parts and is also squirted on pistons to cool.
I have a 2010 with 126,000 miles and check oil weekly.
I do add oil if needed. Ive found that oil usage depends on how the vehicle has been driven (highway vs street)
Ive had multiple used oil analysis showing low iron.
My belief is that owners showing high iron- is mostly iron being shed by the chain on this engine.
On MY vehicle- I change my oil/filter.
Since new- I took note of my TRUE full oil level. (Which by the way is ABOVE the hashed area).
I like to keep my oil above the hash marks.
so if you do get one- just monitor the oil level (engine cold so it has a chance to drain down).
the 2010s have a blade style dipstick.
It changed in later models.
this is what Im talking about.
5.5 qts with filter change.
By the time the oil level is in the middle of the hashed area--- its already 1 qt low.
This is what I consider MY true full oil level....
