is my car cam belt or cam chain?
i bought my car but it was never noted if it had a cam belt or cam chain.
The 3.0L V6 engine has a timing belt - which must be replaced at regular intervals, typically every 60k miles. The engine is an interference design, meaning if the timing belt were to break during engine operation, there is a possibility of major engine component damage; valves hitting the pistons.
