timing belt or chain

Asked by Jan 17, 2014 at 08:52 PM about the 2004 Ford Focus SE Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just bought a 2004 Ford Focus SE Wagon and two mechanics told me it's a timing chain and not a belt. Does the timing cover have to be taken off to find out what it is ?

According to this if its a 2.0 L dohc 4cyl ( vin# 3 or 5 engine code) it is belt and that engine is an interference engine. If it's a 2.0L sohc 4cyl (vin P) it's a belt and non interference engine.
