Cam belt change?

I own a 2002 Ford Escape 3.0L V6 with 87000 miles on the clock. Not sure if this model has a cam belt or chain and if it should have been replaced by now?

Most grateful for any advice

Thanks

    you have a timing chain if its a Duratec v6. best way to check : open oil filler cap and look inside. you will see a chain if it is chain driven.

I just bought a Kia Carens Diesel Auto 2003 model LX. Can you tell me if this has a cam belt or a chain? If a cam belt, what are the recommended miles to get a new belt fitted?


check the timing cover and if it is plastic it will be a belt operation. If it is aluminium and sealed off then it will be a chain. Belts are recommended for a change at 60.000 miles (100.000 klms) but this depends on driving conditions ( constant high rpms) and oil on the belts ( oil reduces the servicability of a rubber belt considerably)

When to change cam belt on 407 hdi 1600 cc ?


It should be changed every 50000 mile's. When changing the cam belt on these engines be sure to fit a new water pump and pulley's. The water pump most of all. It is driven with the cam belt and they can and do fail. Can lead to complete engine rebuild.

How to change a timing chain tensioner on 2002 ford explorer


Pull your Serpentine belt, remove the Cam Belt Cover, (it may be advantageous to remove front wheel in the Cam Belt side) Remove the timing belt and time the engine to specifications, make sure you are on #1TDC, remove the tensioner and replace. if there is and Idler pulley replace that as well. You can use Spray Carb Cleaner to clean the pulleys before replacing the belt. Note, you may have to also remove the Harmonic Balancer and pulleys from the crankshaft.

When does the timing belt need to be replaced?, I have 99,343 miles


This model does not have a valve / cam / timing belt, it uses a timing chain, and they should last the life of the engine. No maintenance required, other than regular oil changes.

Jaguar X-Type cam belt


These are chain driven. The only issue I have seen with these are the chain tensioners breaking. Generaly with chain driven engines, the chain will last the life of the vehicle, unless something like the tensioner or guide brakes. If it does break repairs can be fairly expensive.

When do i need to change my ford focus 18 tdci cam belt


It should be in your owners manual service intervals information,or i go by the 60k miles rule.Some cars now utilize a timing chain and gears like the Mazda 3,so it would be a good idea to call your local Ford dealer,and talk to the service department,as they can tell you the specifics as to whether your engine carries a belt or chain,and the service interval for timing belts.Timing chains generally don't wear out until around the 100k mark,but belts should be serviced at 60k miles as a general rule.
