The 2000 Mitsubishi Montero 3.5L is listed as an "Interference Engine" under timing belts in the www.RockAuto.com auto parts catalog. This means the valves or other major engine parts will be damaged if the timing belt breaks while the engine is running. So replace it as part of scheduled maintenance. Many manufacturers recommend changing the timing belt every 60K miles. I do not know if Mitsubishi recommends different mileage intervals.

A Chilton can provide information on how to reset the scheduled maintenance advisory on a 1997 C230. If this isn't own then the owner's manual can assist in resetting the scheduled maintenance advisory.

The terms are more or less interchangeable. In some instances preventative maintenance such as washing and waxing the vehicle, replacing the wiper blades, replacing a worn drive belt, or inspecting any component is not a scheduled maintenance item, but instead is preventative. Most other scheduled maintenance is preventative maintenance.

Timing chains have no scheduled replacement they are designed to last the life of the engine. Timing belts have replacement intervals
