SOURCE: Does a 1993 BMW 318i have a timing belt or a timing chain?

Hi some of them have a belt but yours being the M43 engine is a chain, the only thing to listen for with them is chain slap or an rattling around the chain area, a bit of research on the M43 engine also shows that the chain should be changed after 100000 miles as they become weak, Just joined here and found this unsolved i know its a bit late but hope the extra info helps

There are 2 engines used on the 318i. One has a chain the other a belt. The M40B18(1990-1993) uses a cam belt and the M43B18(1993-1998) a chain.

2000 saturn ls time chain replacement


What exactly do you need to know about replacing the timing chain? Also you should note that the L200 (4 cyl) has a timing chain. The L300 (V-6) has a timing belt.

Another thing to note is that both of these are interference engines. If your timing chain (or belt) has failed and the engine will not start, the valves are likely bent and you may have damaged the pistons as well.

I have 2003 bmw 318ti 2door i would like to know has it got a timing belt or timing chain thanking you in advance bill volman


It has a timing CHAIN, not a belt. ALL BMWs have timing chains, unless it is an OLDER BMW, which only then might have a belt-driven timing.

Timing chain


The timing chain is nothing like a timing belt service interval wise. The only time that you would need to change a timing chain is if its somehow damaged. This can happen when worked on and the chain guides arent fitted back on properly, camshaft vanos units not tightened etc. Otherwise the timing chains are almost always never changed!

One less thing to worry about. Hope this helps!
