Sorry for probably asking the most common question. But what are the common signs of cambelt/chain engines?

Have something to contribute?

Well, I was interested generally. But specifically for my "new" Mondeo. I don't have a handbook with the car so have no idea where to start :unsure:

HI.
Welcome.

I had a 2.0ltr LX petrol before my diesel, that has the duratec lump in it, that is definitely timing chain, not sure about the Zetec.
