It's a chain. They DO NOT need to be serviced like a belt, so don't worry about it, unless there is a problem with it.

    actually they do need replaced but its only recommended every 100k miles or if the chain becomes loose from a bad tensioner

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

SOURCE: timing belt or timing chain?

You 98 Corolla has a timing chain that it internal and need no normal maintenance. It uses a hydraulic/spring tensioner to keep things tight and as long as its quiet, everything is fine.
Your drive belt (not to be confused with a t. belt) is the external belt you see on the passenger side of the engine. It drives you alt, water pump, A/C and power steering. It uses a spring loaded tensioner to keep the belt tight. These can weaken over time and cause a rattle noise and belt slippage.

SOURCE: When should timing belt be changed?

Hi there:
most manufactures call for timing belt/chains to be replaced approximately every 75,000 to 100,000 miles.
Timing belt replacement can be very difficult if you don't have much experience in that type of repair for the best step by step instructions it would be best too go and get a repair manual from your local parts distributor i would recommend getting a chilton repair manual.
hope this is helpful for you best of luck too you

When is the timing chain of a 2007 1.5 4x4 daihatsu terios changed?


Timing chains do not need changed until they break or get so loose that they jump a tooth on the chain. But if you have a timing belt instead of a timing chain, it does need to be changed before it breaks. Replace the timing belt every 60,000 miles. Severe engine damage will occur if you do not replace the timing belt every 60,000 miles.

Does a kia rio diesel 56 plate need the timing belt changing or has it got a chain


The engine which is made by Mercedes is not belt driven, it has a timing chain, timing chains never need to be replaced unless they fail or the engine is being rebuilt.

2006 pontiac vibe getting close to 100K and feel the need to change the timing chain. Someone advised that is this breaks it destroys the whole engine Trying to divert trouble later.


It is personal taste. Some places recommend that timing CHAINS be replaced every 90K-100K, but others drive until there is some change in their engine performance that would indicate the timing chain and then change it. Since you have the timing chain and not the timing belt it is up to you.

Generally, I will replace timing chains IF I have to pull my engine out of the car for any reason, but won't change it at set intervals.

I have a 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier. Does it have a timing belt or a timing chain? At what milage should I change the timing belt/timing chain? Thank you.


It has a timing chain. The timing chain which is not a timing belt usually does not get changed because it is much stronger to with stand the engines torgue not like the belt which has to replaced every 50 to 60 thousand miles so timing chains do not have to be replaced unless there is something internally that is giving the chain some problems but usually not in most cases.

Does my Civic have a timing chain or a timing belt


It has a timing belt. Recommended to be replace every 105,000 miles, timing belt also run's your water pump good idea to also replace, your engine is also an INTERFERENCE ENGINE which will damage your cylinder head valve's if timing belt goes bad. Hope this was very helpful.

How often to change timeing belt/chain on 1992 pontiac bonneville v6 3.8 engine


Usualy the only time you would change the belt/chain is when the timing is off.. If you want to get changed it would not hurt things. The more new parts you have the better it runs. If it has never been changed on a vehicle that old and you have the money go ahead.. Hope that helps..
