Question about 1995 Ford Bronco

Does a 1995 ford bronco 5.8L have a timing belt or timing chain

I just bought one and I need to know if I have a belt or chain. If it's a belt, I'll replace it immediately to be safe, but if it's a chain, do they last the life of the vehicle or do they have a mileage lifespan that they too should be replaced? My vehicle has 140,000 original miles

SOURCE: broke timing chain in a 3.8 1995 mustang

The timing chain is not a cause for whole engine replacement. If the guy is willing to do it for 150 plus parts and guarentee's it to run right afterwards Id say go for it. 150 Plus parts is a good deal for something like this.

Sincerely,

JC

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Ranger V6 timing chain

Hello;
The Ford motors are pretty good. I had 280K on a 2.9 V-8 that only needed the oil changed every 3K. Unless you have fluctuatuation in the timing then you should be ok.
These engines use a chain rather than a belt and have excellent life.
Thanks;

SOURCE: does the 2000 Ford explorer have a timing Chain or

It's a timing chain... They will probably last for as long as the vehicle does (175k-200k miles depending on upkeep and willingness to keep the dog alive). That said, if there's a reason to have the timing chain cover off an engine over 100k... I'm the type that would go ahead and replace the timing chain while it's in front of you if you plan on having the vehicle for more than a year or so.

If you have the engine pulled for any reason over 100k, then that's another time that I'd be replacing the timing chain and the oil pump while I'm at it...

SOURCE: AT WHAT MILEAGE SHOULD A TIMING CHAIN BE REPLACED

There is no specified mileage. Timing chains last a lot longer than timing belts and the rate at which they wear can depend more on the frequency of oil changes and engine use or abuse. The general rule of thumb most shops go by now; if it's getting noisy, then it's time to pull the timing cover. Often times it's not the chain itself, but the chain guides that have failed. Either way, a timing chain job will involve new guides, tensioner, and chain. It's an expensive job, no need to rush into it unless you know you have something coming apart and noise is your first indicator.

87 bronco timing belt diagram


a 1987 Bronco does not have a timing belt. It uses a timing chain and gears on the crankshaft and camshaft. NO adjustment can be made or is needed. The chain will stretch over time and then replacement is the only fix.

Does my 1987 ford bronco 2 auto,4x4 have a timing


Belt, remove the the front plastic cover which covers the Timing Belt to see if the belt is stripped of teeth, same as the old Ford Pinto motor.. remove dist cap and watch rotor rotation, see if it is spinning... Ignition Modules are a major issue with those in that year also... check module also...
