Hello all,
I just turned over 50k. Should I be worried about my timing belt yet or do I have another 10k to go? My last car had 60,217 miles on it and the belt went while doing 80 on the highway....the day I got out of the Army never the less...but that's another story.

I just don't want a $1500 repair on this car if i can help it.

Thanks!

I think you are correct. But the Hemi has a chain. I wonder if Cloyes makes a replacement yet?!

the chain tensioner is the primary thing you wanna make sure you replace on the hemi's. Actually a tensioner is pretty necassary on any timing belt job.
