Hi Shaun, the timing chain is supposed to last the life of the car. However there have been occasions where this has been known not to be the case:frown

The tensioners around the chain do require replacement:thumbsup

With regards to the noise you are getting I would be inclined to check the breather pipes as you mention it goes when you remove the dipstick.
