Q:

Timing Chain replacement on 2005 Scion xB

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have 35,000 miles. Do I need to replace my timing chain for this model before I hit the 50,000 mark?

The Scion XB has a timing chain. I haven't seen any problems with them, two customers have 100,000 to 130,000 miles on theirs no problems at all.
No, you don't. Timing chains are not regular maintenance items, and they don't need to be replaced unless there is a repair that needs to be happens.

Check your owner's manual. If you have a timing belt, and not a chain, it will need to be replaced at an interval defined by the manufacturer.
