If it needs replacing (mine never did in the 247000 miles I had the car for before I traded it in), you'll get more than ample warning as the chain noise (rattle) increases. > I seem to recall reading somewhere that the 6-cylinder > requires a timing belt change, but not the 4-cylinder. Is this true? Yes. I believe the interval on the 6-cylinder is 30,000 miles. Not changing a timing belt when reccomended is just asking for trouble. Dave Hinz
