Honda fit: timing belt/chain?


#1

Hi, I was checking out Honda Fit, it says it has a “Drive-By-Wire” throttle system. I am not sure what it is. Does anyone know whether the Fit uses a timing belt or does it have a timing chain?



thanks.

It appears to have a chain. Do a google search for Honda Fit timing chain.

FWIW, I found this info. It does appear to have a timing chain. Drive by wire means that the throttle peddle is not physically connected to the engine, the throttle position is input to the computer which controls the fuel and air flow to the engine.
