Question type: General

does my vin# indicate anything about timing chain or belt for my 2011 edge?

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).
