does the maxda rx6 timing chain have to be replaced as part a maintanence schedule
In your owners manual check under "specifications". It should say the timing chain should be changed between 85K-105K. Not sure of the exact mileage, but it should be up there in that range. You won't have to worry about that for a while yet.
Chains typically outlast belts 2 to 1. So you may not need to address it for over 150K miles. The guides go out before the chain does. The chain is changed when the guides are changes as preventive maintenance.
