Your 2002 century doesn't have a timing belt. It has a timing chain. Timing chains don't need to be changed at a certain mileage.

I have a 2002 Buick century and it turns over but it wont crank but you can hear it bout to crank. could it be my timing?

Broken timing belt would be where I would start.
To check the belt, open the oil fill, using a flashlight look into it while someone is cranking the engine, if nothing is moving in there while the motor is turning over, the belt is snapped.

I am about to buy a chrysler sebring convertible 2002 with 129000 miles. It has never had the timing belt replaced. Should I be concerned/

The recommendation is at 102,000 miles for the 2.4 and 2.5L engines. I would be inclined to visually inspect the belt for any signs of fatigue and if absent wait for while longer. The 2.7L has a timing chain(s) so nothing needs to be done for it.

Just curious, timing belt or chain. If belt when to change. Kia sedona 02 V-6. Thank you

Has a timing belt, Kia recommends replacement every 60,000 miles, also this engine in an interference engine, which valve to piston damage most likely will occur in the event of timing belt failure.

I would look for a fault in the ignition system such as a cracked spark plug. Might need a scope check to put your finger on the problem
