My data book shows that all Mazda motors around the 2006 year are all chain driven. they include 4 cylinders and V -6 engines . Chains have an aluminium housing on the front of the engine where as belts have a plastic cover . Chains have a hydraulic adjuster which adjusts the chain automatically and the KLM's to do it will depend on the work the engine does and the services it gets . For example if you are a petrol head and forget the services or uses cheap /wrong grade oils then the chain may be noisy at 150.000 klms but if you drive responsibly and change the oil every 10.000 klms and use a good quality oil the chain will last more than 250.000klms. To prevent being taken in future check the accreditation of the mechanic and ask around about the garage's customer relations

SOURCE: cambelt or chain

Your 2005 VW Golf has a timing belt and not a chain.
Most importantly, your VW has what's called an interference engine.
If th eblt breaks, it will allow the valve to collide with the pistons and you will have major damage.

Be very careful to replace the belt on or before the manufacturer's recommended replacement interval.

VW originally recommended 60k miles or 5 years but that in 2004 or 2005 they changed that to 40k miles or 3 years after seeing belts (and therefore pistons and valves) go pop after about 45k.

Can someone tell me if the 2005 Mazda 6 2.0 diesel 136ps has a cambelt or chain? If it is a belt when should I replace it. I'm on 116000 km's.


Filipe, Gates is a timing belt manufacturer and they recommend changing belt every 100,000 KM. This is what is known as a interference fit engine, If the timing belt were to break, it could cause extensive damage to valve train. Through some searching, recommended Timing Belt change interval is 60/75000 miles or every 72 months. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Good news- your car doesn't have a cam belt, it has a cam chain which should last the life of the engine.

We are looking to buy a 2003 Mazda 6 S I was wondering if this engine a V6 has a timing belt or chain thanks Mike


Reading Topic: Timing Chain?? Both the 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder use timing chains. These chains are pretty much service free and should last the life of the vehicle. Borrowed from http://forum.mazda6club.com/mazda6-atenza/121169-timing-chain.html
