    I own 2005 Saturn Vue and I am first owner. The mileage is 121,400 on it. Two weeks ago, I found out that timing chain broken because low oil. Even though no oil light on dashboard. I was 3 months past due. I scheduled for oil change but timing broken before a week scheduled for oil change. I feel so sick. Basically it is my FAULT. It hurts me. The mechanic heard the noise and know it is broken timing chain without remove the engine to look at it. I am struggled if I should replace timing chain or not. Some said FORGET IT.

    I would love to get your opinion if I should get mechanic to remove the engine to look at it to make sure. Engine might be damaged due to low oil and timing chain. Or sell to Junkyard.
