It is possible for it to break, but highly unlikely, especially if you perform oil/filter changes as you should. Normally the timing chain will last the life of the engine and is not an item you replace. But on your Saturn it is critical that the oil/filter be changed exactly as listed in the owner's manual. The timing chain may also come into contact with the timing cover, causing noise in the engine. The only way to know for sure if the chain needs replacing is to look at it. If you do that, you might as well just replace it.


I just found out that it has a timing chain. No maintenance is required.


1998 i30 has timing chain. just confirmed from my dealer.


I just found out that it has a timing chain because mine is being replaced.


Timing chains and timing belts are used to turn the cam shaft. The term timing chain or belt is a misnomer. They are really just a cam chain or cam belt.

Yes.The good news is, the timing chain seldom breaks; they aren't like the timing belts. You can typically just drive the vehicle until the engine is tired, then replace the timing chain, sprockets and tensioner slides while you're rebuilding the rest of the engine.The bad news is, anything is possible and a timing chain CAN break.The "L" series uses a timing belt for the V6 engine, but the 4 cylinder Saturn engines all use timing chains.


no they just have timing belts no chains


It has a chain and it's a pain to work on, just had to replace mine.


There is no set mileage to change the timing chain. Chains will usually last the life of the engine. The usual symptoms of a chain going bad are that the engine rattles when you first start it (chain flapping around) and lacks power(slack chain causing camshaft timing to drift around unpredictably). Replacing a chain can cost from $500-$700 so just rest easy, and unless you hear it or notice poor performance it is fine.


There are marks on the chain that coordinate with marks on the timing gear. Make sure these line up when putting on the timing chain, and you should be good to go. Getting to the timing chain is the real battle.


I have a 2003 Element and just found out recently from a Honda shop that It has a timing chain that does not need changing.


It has a timing chain, I just ordered one and the kit was 420.00$.


YES, The 1992 Jeep Wrangler 2.5 liter engine (4 Cylinder) Does have a timing chain. I just finished a rebuild of My 2.5 and it does in fact have a Chain.


A 1997 Monte Carlo does not have a timing belt just a chain!


its on the timing chain. just follow timing chain replacement procedures and it will lead you to the water pump


I just replaced the timing chain for my 2000 Camry. I did the same thing for my last Camry, a 1996. The timing chain goes after the water pump bearings fail and jams everything up. Then I had to replace the timing belt, water pump, and all belts.


It just means shine a timing light on the crankshaft pulley and time the engine.


It has a timing belt. I just had mine changed.


It has a timing belt and should be changed at 60,000 miles.new answerno, i think it's timing chain. i also think people just make up answers.


Timing Belt. Mine just went out. You might have to replace the tensioners too. :(


No. It has a timing chain. the timing belt on my 1999 corolla has just been changed. it depends on the engine type.


If your vehicle is at least 60,000 miles it is recommended you replace the timing chain. If your timing chain broke, your engine would NOT run because the timing chain is what rotates your engines camshafts to open and close the valves. Also, you would have some serious engine damage if you were driving and your engine suddenly just quit and it happened to be your timing chain. There really is no way to "check" a timing chain as it's hidden behind the belt area of the engine (if I'm not mistaken). If you're going to go through the labor of "checking" a timing chain, you might as well replace it, as the average timing chain job costs about $220, $200 of that being the labor.


All 2011 Mazdas use timing chain. Just look up "timing" at autozone.com for your vehicle...and it will show you what is available for sale....that's a good way to test.
