Transmission and timing belt I have over 200,000 miles on my Mercedes 300E series. Should I change my chain timing belt immediately? Transmission is a little funky. Would changing the transmission oil help it longevity?

If you mean the timing chain yes would be my response. If you have never changed it who knows what condition its in. If you mean the belt just check the rubber for cracks and such and replace as needed.

Transmission has cooling lines that pass through the radiator for longevity. New fluid and filter will help the clutches from being worn for sure. Its a 30K mile change so definatly a good idea. Also check for vacuum leaks.

I have 115,000 miles on my car and it runs great. Do I need to worry about the timing chain/belt replacement?


If it has a timing belt, the belt should have been replace at around 80,000 miles. So you are running on borrowed time.
If it has a chain, the chain and gears are designed to last the life of the engine, or around 200,000 miles.

My 2005 Silverado Z71 has been running extremely rough, has lost power and sometimes hesitates when taking off from a stopped position. Is this a timing belt issue? A transmission issue? I just had the...


You do not have a timing belt, you have a timing chain that should be good for 200,000 miles or more. Could be fuel filter, fuel pump, vacuum leak or a host of other things. If you are not getting a service engine soon light, it is robably not a sensor. Could also be a plugged catalitic converter.

How often (Mileage) do I change timing belt on


chains are not like belts.... they are much tougher therefore last a hell of a lot longer...typically around 90,000 miles or more they should be looked at as they do eventually stretch and can jump time...they also have tensioners that can wear out causing the chain to jump a tooth, and a tell tale sign of this wear is indicated by noise coming from the timing chain case area.I have seen some 3.8 v/6 engines one in particular manufactured by Buick/Olds and installed in early CJ 5 Jeeps lasting over 200,000 miles...but sounding like a washing machine at idle from all the worn parts as well as some having a fiber type cam sprocket that wears out(used to help silence any gear slap noise)Hope this somewhat helps.

Coming up on 200,000 Km. What service should I


That is about 120, 000 miles, if you have not done already, you should change the timimg belt and while you are doing that it is a good idea to replace the water pump. You could change your transmission oil but not critical.

When to change the timming belt for kia sedona 2002


The dealer recommends the timing belt be replaced at 60,000 miles if it is a rubber timing belt. Newer Sedona models have a metal chain timing belt that don't need to be replaced so soon.
