Richard, a 93 BMW 325i has timing chain and not a belt. Unless it has been absolutely neglected in terms of oil changes, the chain should last 2-300k miles

Richard, It will cost more if you take it to a BMW certified mechanic but it is worth every penny. Also i'm not sure if you have an interferance or non-interferance motor but you need to replace it (if it has not already broken) so that it will cost less than having to replace the whole motor.

Do u have to change timing belt when u replace a water pump on 1993 camry


Depending on the amount of miles on your vehicle it may be time to service the timing belt. Personally if it was me and I had to replace the water pump I would probable replace the timing belt at the same time since the cost is minimal. You can always check it for wear and cracks when you take it apart.

I need to replace the alternator belt in 1993 bmw 318 is


Here is a link to a thorough alternator replacement guide for BMWs.
http://www.pelicanparts.com/bmw/techarticles/101-Projects-89-Alternator/101-Projects-89-Alternator.htm
The model noted is an older 318is, (the E30 model), but since it is the exact same engine, the guide notes the changes with your model year BMW. Note that if you are ever looking for information for your BMW, generally info online is found under the internal model code. 1993-1999 BMWs are called E36, so in this guide make sure to follow what it says about the E36 models.

Just want to find out...does bmw 318i e36 have a timing belt or timing chain?


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.

Signs to look for for time to get timing belt looked at. I have just purchased a second hand Hyundai 1993 excel sprint (maual transmission) but service record doesn't show any replacement being done on...


look at mileage. the replacement of the timing belt needs to be done at 60,000 miles. you risk severe damage if this is not done. these belts costs around $300-400 to do.

BMW recommends that the timing belt be changed every second Inspection ii, or every 4 years on cars that have low mileage. Most of the rest of the industry has timing belt changing intervals ranging from 40,000 miles to 60,000 miles. It is better to change the belt at a lower mileage than at a higher number.
The timing belt must be replaced every time the belt tensioner is loosened. Do not reinstall a used belt. Reusing a timing belt, even one with low mileage, is not worth the chance of having a belt break and damaging the engine.

Good luck.

Does a 1993 BMW 318i have a timing belt or a timing chain? I just bought this BMW and the previous owner did not know whether or not the timing belt was changed. I've heard that if the timing belt goes out...


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
