If it requires a timing belt it probably is but not all engines have belts.

The Expedition uses a timing chain. It doesn't have to be changed as part of a schedule like a timing belt.

The recommended timing belt interval is at 160000 kilometers or 100000 miles.

No, under normal circumstances the timing chain will last the life of the engine and is replaced when the engine is overhauled.

I have a 1999 silverado and it has 160,000 miles. It runs great and I have not changed the timing belt. Ask another mechanic for their opinion.

Timing chains usually do not have a service interval. Timing belts do, 60,000 -100,000 miles

No, uses a timing chain. It should never need changed. If you take halfway good care of the vehicle it will last 200,000+ miles. I have owned two old toyota celicas with timing chains and they both had over 250K miles on them without ever changing the chain..
