    These belts fail earlier than the 100,000 miles that the factory recommends to change it, the 2.7 is a very problematic power plant, change the belt and the water pump at 75,000 to avoid it failing and ruining the engine. If the water pump fails then the head gaskets get blown out, very expensive fix.

My mistake the engine has a timing chain, (mixed it up with the 3.5L V6) but it is still prone to problems, there is no recommenede change interval.

SOURCE: timing belt or chain

Ummmm woahhh hold up here...every 2.7 litre V6 i've been associated with had timing CHAINS. The chains ran the water pump and dual over head camshafts.
The 2.7l engine was manufactured by Mitsubishi for Chrysler and had an internal water pump with defective seals that allowed coolant to leak & mix with the oil causing severe sludging problems and eventual engine FAILURE...This has been a nightmare for Chrysler AND OWNERS !
MANY owners have contacted ISG Impartial Services Group 1-(866)332-3746 for a settlement with Chrysler
Attached is a cutaway view of the 2.7 litre, and as you can clearly see it is chain driven.
I've been a MOPAR enthusiast all my life...sadly, this engine was one of the worst to ever hit the streets.
Good luck Doug...i hope this helps.

If you are referring to the vehicle having a "Timing Belt", no, it does not have one.

SOURCE: When should timing belt be changed?

Hi there:
most manufactures call for timing belt/chains to be replaced approximately every 75,000 to 100,000 miles.
Timing belt replacement can be very difficult if you don't have much experience in that type of repair for the best step by step instructions it would be best too go and get a repair manual from your local parts distributor i would recommend getting a chilton repair manual.
hope this is helpful for you best of luck too you

Your 2002 century doesn't have a timing belt. It has a timing chain. Timing chains don't need to be changed at a certain mileage.

I have Nissan sentra GX 2002 90000Miles ,change timing belt?


I own this car, and I can say confidently that it has a timing chain instead of a belt. I believe you do not need to change the chain at any point...... it is more a matter of maintenance and repair to worn guides and tensioners.
