My car runs fine but I would like to know when I should take it in to have my timing chain replaced I know on toyotas it should be replaced around 75,000 and with a chain instead of a belt I should get more distance my Haynes book gives me know clue and after replacing two timing belts in two months on other cars I feel like treating myself and having someone else do it
Do you

Your vehicle is equipped with a timing chain which has no maintenance interval from the dealer. Chains are " supposed " to last the lifetime of the vehicle, unfortunately that usually is not true. Personally I replace chains at 150k miles and most belts I replace around 75k miles.

There is no time frame or mileage set for changing the timing chain
