I can't seem to determine if I have timing (chain or belt). also have seen discussion on mileage interval. My CRV has 70K miles, I am one owner, and always changed oil at 3,500 - 4,000 miles or every 6 months, whatever occurs first. Never had a low oil condition. SO, if it's a chain, any thoughts.
thanks

Well almost 20 years. Last belts we're used in the early 2000s.

There isn't a service interval for the chain. It's replace when worn. Usually between 175 and 200k is when most get symptoms of a bad chain. And even then it's usually the tensioner going bad that causes the issue, not doing it's job and then accelerates wear. I did mine @ just over 200k for piece of mind.

We're talking CRVs

Pilots, Ridgelines, and Odyssey's all have the 3.5L v6 with a timing belt.

Part of the S2000 operation?

Tigris, I wonder if the change to timing chain in CR-V and Accord came from the development of the 2000 to run at 9,000 RPM?

The biggest reason behind going to chains is mainly laziness and cheapness of people. Letting g the cars go till the timing belt breaks then whining about it.
