In Reply to: Do I need to worry about timing chain @ 162k Mi? posted by Bob Hazelwood on October 27, 2000 at 11:00:07:

On my previous Ford Thunderbird V8 I had to replace at about 150k. The car got staled just across the repair shop which replaced it...

89 525 (belt)

Do the chains or tensioners on the M50tu ever need preventive maintenance or adjustment?
I just hit 162k, and memories of the bill from the time the timing belt broke on my old E30 are starting to creep back into my mind.
