2009 RX 350 - Timing Belt/Chain
Is the 2009 RX 350 engine and Interference or non interference type engine.
No recommendation in maintenance schedule to replace timing chain. If I drive
till it goes out can there be damage to the engine? Hate spending the money
if it's not completely necessary. Just hit 124K miles.
Please comment/advise. Thanks!
The 2009 RX 350 has a timing chain so no maintenance is required for the timing chain it self. It is NOT a wise move to run a vehicle past a recommended repair until something breaks.
I have no issues with the timing chain, my mechanic (Lexus certified) says I don't need to replace it at all. "Belts have to be replaced, chains do not" There is no recommendation for replacement of the timing chain in my service manual or online. Just looking for confirmation of this.
