Bmw recommend you change the belts at 75k, but chains at 95k....my 320i 6 cylinder had done 225k on the original set of timing chains, and was still going strong months after i sold her, ( cos i sold her to a friend, so i know the car is still running well )....but unless yours is a 318 is, then you will have a belt ,not chains, so, i would change it before 150k

I believe 150k or 200k. can't remeber. it should be in your owners manual. If u r worried about it breaking or stretching u should replace it and not risk.

There are 2 engines used on the 318i. One has a chain the other a belt. The M40B18(1990-1993) uses a cam belt and the M43B18(1993-1998) a chain.

Does a 1993 BMW 318i have a timing belt or a timing chain? I just bought this BMW and the previous owner did not know whether or not the timing belt was changed. I've heard that if the timing belt goes out...


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
