#8 of 9 2005 Matrix XR - Timing Belt vs. Chain
May 01, 2010 (5:48 am)
From what I've read here, it looks as though this vehicle has a timing chain vs. a belt. does this mean that since I'm at 107K miles I don't need to worry about changing it? Thanks... BIGGSEAL OUT!

If you change your oil regularly the chain itself will in theory last the life of the engine.
In reality the sprockets and chain tensioner typically get noisy ~200-300K miles.
