Timing belt should be changed every 60k miles

AnswerTiming belt intervals vary some are 60,000 miles some 90,000 and some even 120,000 miles. What engine liter size do you have? Yours may have a timing chain, not a belt. AnswerA 2000 Buick Century is equiped from the factory with only one engine option. A 175hp 3100SFI (3.1L), this engine has a short timing chain, being that it is an OHV engine. There isn't a maintanence schedule for the timing chaing on this engine. Nor for any 1997 through 2005 Buick Century as they only came with this one engine option. 1997 - 1999 (160hp), 2000 - 2005 (175hp).

It does not have a timing belt. It has a chain.
