Timing belt or chain
Author Last Post
Hi Ross

Thank you for your answer.

Thanks, Kurt
It's not like a belt that must be changes at x number of miles. There is no age or mileage that is suggested in the service manual to replace it. The 4.5L is a push rod engine so it only has a single timing chain. The 93's with the 4.6L Northstar engines use multiple chains and guides.

Hi Ross

Thank you for yuor answer.

Do you also know if the chain has to be changed at some specific miles or age etc.?

The 4.5 has a sturdy timing chain.

Can anyone tell me if the 4.5 l Allante ingine (1989) is with a timing belt or chain?

Thanks, Kurt
