No, timing chains are not expected to be replaced periodically like belts. Ocassionally they get noisey at high mileages and require a new tensioner pad but usually the chain is OK with a new pad

How many speed sensors does a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero limited have?

No idea why fixya keeps sending me questions about a 2002 Montero (Pajero). I have never owned one. I did own a 2005 Pajero diesel turbo but sold that in 2014 and now own a 2014 Triton.
Sorry I cant answer your question.

I have a Mitsubishi Pajero NM 2002 3.2lt diesel timing chain

I checked out the pajero forum, they don't mention the bottom tensioner as being the noise maker here but rather a sloppy chain, stretched beyond the tensioner and riding on the guides. The noise sounds like it comes from the fan area as a metallic chattering. They sell a chain that has a master link in it, and you don't have to tear down the entire engine again to get to it, just the top cover,, Cut the old chain, and use it to pull the new one through. Also, if your chain did jump its gear, it would only be a matter of 8 - 10 miles before the cam breaks. Hope this helps.

I have a 1984 dodge ram pick up with the mitsubishi motor and i was woindering if the timeing was belt or chain

1984 years came with the 2.0L, 2.6L gasoline and 2.3 diesel engines.

It's most likely a timing belt, but read further for more info. Recommended to be replaced at 60,000 miles (96,000 km) on gasoline engines and on diesel engines at 50,000 miles (80,000 km).

The 2.0 L Engine have two timing belts. One connects the crankshaft and camshaft, the second one drives the right silent shaft.

The 2.6L engine has a timing chain and a silent shaft chain.

Please check to see which particular engine you have and refer to the above for your answer.
