5.0 mustangs use steel gears for the crank and cam shaft with a double roller chain. This item is replaced only when the engine is overhauled. 210,000 and still running. same timing chain

The Ford Mustang does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain that should last the life of the engine and requires no maintenance.

I'm not a mechanic / technician but as far as I know there is no scheduled timing CHAIN change on an engine like there is on a timing BELT

The 2003 Ford Mustang does no have a timing belt, it has a chain which requires no maintenance. Replace the water pump when it starts leaking. It should last 100,000 miles or more.

Mustang's have timing chains not belts and do not have interference engines. Change the timing chain when it brakes or stretches to the point it throws off your valve timing.

You are correct that the SL2 uses a timing chain. However, since it uses a timing chain it does not need to be replaced as does the timing BELT. In general, a timing chain should last the life of the engine.

If it is noisy, the engine timing is hard to maintain, or the engine is performing poorly, it may need changing. Timing chains are very durable and usually last the life of the engine or until it needs an overhaul.
