Does the Suzuki Swift from 2005 - have a timing belt or chain and if it has a chain would it ever need replacing ?

05 1.3 Do these cars have a timing belt - Pugugly
Good: Well liked by owners. Chain cam Toyota engines. Astonishingly good handling. Fun to drive.
Bad: A little bit tinny. Not as spacious as a Yaris.


According to some fellow's website*


*HJ actually if you look in the Car by Car Breakdown.

Chains should never need replacing*

Make sure to keep the oil clean. Replacing the timing chain on a high mileage engine will probably hasten its demise as the sprockets will be worn in to fit the old chain.



*unless it's a Triumph Stag.
