Were there any signs prior to timing jumping? Any chain rattle on start up? How did it happen? While cruising? Right on start up?

I'm sitting at 127k and getting increasingly paranoid about the chain/tensioner, but engine feels strong and no rattles whatsoever.

No signs whatsoever....cruising at 80 mph in the left lane and it died......dead......no worky worky.....coasted thru 3 other lanes of traffic to the shoulder and shut down....let it cool off and then it started, ran rough and made it home and then the dealer the next day.

Call salvage and junk yards, ask why the car is there and if it isnt anything related to the engine, then go for it. thats my 2 cents
