Answers from the Automotive Experts

Thank you for writing in. Yes, all 2005 CRV models will have a timing chain and not a timing belt. The timing chain is a component that you should not have to replace as part of normal maintenance. The timing chain typically only gives you issues if and when something goes wrong with the engine or that component is damanged independently.

Yes, all 2005 Honda CRVs have a timing chain.
