The Genuine OEM Engine Timing Chain Tensioner (12636526) is specifically designed for 2016-2022 Cruze, Trax, Terrain, and Encore models with a 1.5 engine. This crucial part maintains the correct tension in the timing chain, ensuring that the engine's valves open and close at the right times during each cylinder's intake and exhaust strokes. The tensioner can help prevent the timing chain from slipping off the gears, thus avoiding potential engine damage. A faulty tensioner may cause the engine to perform poorly or even fail, making its replacement vital for the engine's optimal operation.

This is a genuine, brand-new part straight from the original equipment manufacturer's packaging. It is the exact same part you would receive from a new car dealership, ensuring the high quality and performance that's consistent with original manufacturing standards. This is not an aftermarket product; it's a genuine OEM part, identical to the one initially installed in your Cruze, Trax, Terrain, or Encore.
