ford v6 timing belt or chain?
Vin # is irrelevant, all engines used in a 2011 Edge use a timing chain, not a belt. Ford doesn't like belts.
I think the real question is when do you replace a belt and when do you replace a chain Scott
GuruT2JG9, there is no question there. The owners manual prescribes the mileage interval to change the belt. The chain is considered a lifetime part, but it needs changed when you start to hear excessive rattle or the timing is off enough that the engine runs poorly. "Most" vehicles go to a junkyard never having needed the chain changed, though in more recent years with OHC designs, that is changing and many would assume you ought to put a new chain on if you hit 200K mi. and think the vehicle is valuable enough to warranty it - depends on who is doing the work, DIY it's a couple hundred dollars but paying someone else to do it at 200K mi, could cost more than the vehicle is worth at that point (depends on the vehicle).
