Does my 2002 Mercury Sable have a timing chain or timing belt?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Jessica Howe, Automotive Expert & Coach at


Thank you for writing in. Your vehicle should be equipped with a metal chain rather than a rubber belt. If you are going to replace the timing chain, make sure that you inspect the sprockets and other related components near the timing chain. Good luck!
