Hi all. Can you please tell me if a 56 plate 2.0 petrol S Max has a timing chain or belt. If chain does it just need checking and if belt what is the recommended time to change? Thanks

Not sure about the 2.0 but the 2.5 petrol is belt driven and though Ford recommend a 125,000 interval, plenty of them have snapped much earlier than that so the specialists advise changing at around 75,000 miles.


It's worth checking the smax owners club forum as they have all the recommended service items listed on there.
