I always use the oil life monitor and my car is at 120k and never had any problems with tensioner or timing chain actually I just took my valve cover off to check the timing chain and everything looks beautiful.

Ya got to give some reasons

I was very interested in this when I first picked up my IRL


For me I relied on it once and it went off with 4300 miles which was disappointing

or perhaps it's just doing a good job considering an old car now.

I have gotten my oil changed less than 3500 miles on the other few times, before it alerted
