Hi guys, i"ve seen a couple post related to timing belts or chains but It didn"t really answer all of my questions, just some of it. Currently I have a 2007 Honda Civic DX 4 door with almost 94,000KM on it. I just want to ask if my car is equipped with a timing belt or a timing chain and when should I replace it. Thnx in advance

oh good then, I"m not gonna need to spend 600 bucks for replacement, but does it need maintenance or is it virtually maintenance free.

Umm... why wouldn"t you?I mean unless you prefer paying for a new head/valves/springs/retainers/any applicable machining/AND a timing chain when your chain is, how you say, "f*cked".Replace the chain at recommended intervals.
Yeah...but how baller will you be with a <$34,000> carbon fiber bench in your house? Look at it this way. You could have a Subaru STI, OR you could have a carbon fiber bench. I think the choice is pretty clear

I"d beg to differ that you don"t replace your timing chain every 10k.- But ofc, if you"re being sarcastic... then I digress.

when it breaks...which it won"t...the valves will snap in half and the block will rust before that chain breaksany stretching is easily counteracted by the tensionerwhich is something you actually do need to replace...

Don"t ask me - Consult your maintenance schedule (you know, one of those thin manuals you probably lost or tossed?)
