Is this like a recall? Sorry, I'm not sure how this effects me and what I should do about it.

Not a recall

Notification to dealers that there's a newer timing chain if a replacement is ordered

There was actually a new chain already. This seems to either be the official announcement or a 3rd revision.

part numbers:
# 1140A073
# MN183891

Correct

Think it's the official announcement since it was the only one on the generated tech list

I had my timing chain stretch and they ordered me a new chain. I inquired why it was different and they said they just changed suppliers. BS!

Here is the chain that was in my car (2008 x)

Here is a pic of the chain they ordered me:

Look at the difference:

So glad that there is a new chain again, its gonna be like the relay problem. Does this mean if you have the second revision chain should we check to see and worry about upgrading to this new third revision?
