Just about everything has a timing belt now days, because they are quite. A timing belt is a very important part of your car, it won't run without it, and in many cases if it breaks you will trash your engine in an instant. I'd change every time I change my other belts, I honestly believe that is a good rule of thumb, Your owners manual should tell you what the manufacturer recommends. I hope this helps, I do this for free, and I just want to help people.

Does the 1996 Honda Passport have a timing belt or timing chain. If it is a chain, does it need to be replaced at 100K?


It has a timing belt that MUST be changed every 100,000kms..........if it had a chain, then it only needs to be replced when it becomes noisy...

I would suggest also replcing the water pump whilst the belt is off......save time/labour later on down the track....

1996, 2.2 chevy cavalier, I keep getting different answers. Does it have a timing chain, or timing belt? If it has a timing chain, does that need to be changed?


the 2.2 is a timing chain. If the cover on the front of the engine is metal it is almost always a timing chain. If it is plastic is always a timing belt.

When should i change the timing belt or chain on my 1996 5 litre Ford Explorer? It has 194000 km on it.


The 5.0 has a timing chain. A chain will usually last the life of a motor if the motor is well taken care of. The only time I ever replace a chain is if it is making noise or I have a timing cover off to repair a leak and the vehicle has higher miles. Otherwise you rarely see failed timing chains.

Do i need to change my timing chain when i change my water pump on a 96 nissan maxima?


Not necessarily. You should at least consider it if you are close to a major service milestone (90k, 120k, etc.). It is a lot of work to change the timing chain (belt), but you have to do some of the work anyway to replace the water pump.
