Timing Belt/Chain Question


#1

I have a 1998 Ford F150 XL with 170,000 mile on it. Does it have a timing belt or chain and if so should I take it in to be inspected and or replaced?

Thank you.

VIN or engine size please.

Engine size 4.2L V 6

If the maintenance schdeule for your owner’s manual includes a chedule for changing the timing belt, then you have a belt and are living on borrowed time.

If not, you have a chain and need do nothing at all unless you eventually start hearing the clattering racket of a worn chain/guide/sprocket(s).

Refer to your owner’s manual maintenance schedule.

timing chain in the 4.2. Not unless it is actually worn. Not needed as routine maintinence.
