i have the 2.5L I4 with the 5 speed manual, i know on my old 89 yota i had a chain, but i wasnt sure it was the same for all manual transmissions.... but what i do know is if i have a timing belt than its about time to change it
mitsubishis have 3 on some of their little 4 cylinders. bmw e30s use one and so do the old isuzu troopers.
its funny, the only time bmw ever tried the belt on an engine and its the best selling bmw ever made in history. that belt is the one downfall for the model and htey removed it and went back to a chain for the next model 3 series which never sold as well.
