Timing Belt

I have a 95 XLT Explorer with 105,000 miles on it. It runs fine, and I've
always changed the oil every 3000 miles and the transmission fluid every
20,000 miles. Is there a need to change the timing belt on it? Does it
have a timing belt or timing chain that needs attention at this mileage? I
don't know much about cars and wonder if I should do anything. Thanks for
your advice.

Re: Timing Belt

Thanks for letting me know it uses a chain. At any rate, does the chain
need to be changed or anything done with it so it doesn't break or something
and ruin the engine?

Re: Timing Belt

I don't think you have to worry about it. The OHV V6 is pretty much
bulletproof. The chain will last longer than the car.
