timing belt/chain yrv turbo

Forum: 

when should the timing chain/belt be changed on the turbo? Save me searching for the manual Smile

The turbo has a timing

The turbo has a timing chain, when I asked this question at the local Daihatsu servicing garage I was told it doesn't get changed as it's a chain and should last the lifetime of the car, unlike a belt made from rubber etc.. which will age and stretch.
Although saying that I was also told that the Autobox fluid is also a lifetime product as well.

Timing Chain !!

2004 Sirion 1300 4 Track. And I love it.
Don't like the new shape much.

Concur with Jpor.:)

I have a Sirion. It has a timing chain.
I was told pretty much the same.
As long as you service correctly and use good quality oils the chain should last pretty much as long as the engine.

But if it starts to rattle then you will have to change it.

Big Job Sad
