Question about Cars & Trucks
My kia rio has done 92000 miles but hasnt had a timing belt changed does it need changing or does it have a timing chain
The engine which is made by Mercedes is not belt driven, it has a timing chain, timing chains never need to be replaced unless they fail or the engine is being rebuilt.

yes, this is VERY IMPORTANT, this is an interference engine, meaning the valves and the piston cannot be in the same place at the same time,or it will bend the valves.then you are looking at a major repair job,think or it as insurance on your engine. please rate my fix as i strive to be the best,questions,get back to me

I have a 1.5 CRDi which uses the Mercedes engine and has a cam chain not a belt
Check the owners manual the chain doesnt need replacing on any of the service intervals it only requires checking and retentioning
