Q: Does my car have a timing belt or timing chain?

asked by on

My car has 95000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello there, thanks for your question. Your vehicle has a timing belt, not a chain.

The recommended replacement mileage for the belt is 150,000 at which time related (nearby) components such as the water pump, thermostat, timing pulley bearings(s) and certain engine seals should also be replaced. If other maintenance or repair needs arise, by all means, feel free to re-contact YourMechanic and we will assist you.
