    Timing Belts have regular replacement intervals and timing chains do not. A timing belt is made of rubber, thus needing regular replacement. Your timing belt will need replacement at the 105,000 mile service or when the vehicle is 7 years old.
    A timing chain will only need replacement if it wears out, or if the timing chain tensioners or guides wear out. Normally these items will last for the life of the engine, especially if the oil is changed regularly and even more so if you use synthetic oil.
