Ok silly question.
Is the 2 litre VTEC engine got a timing belt or is it a chain?
IIRC correctly only the the D16V1 7th Generation Civic engines are belt. .rest are all chains including the Jazz
Ok. Just was looking in engine bay and couldn't see it lol well nothing looked chain like
Yeah chain is encased inside the side cover.
if it was exposed the engine will seize in 5 minutes as it will lose all the oil, which lubricates the chain.
That's fine with me. Glad I have that cleared up. Cheers
Glad we helped mate , just change the oil regularly the chain will never stretch.
@Zebster biting me tongue on weasels call that progress.
Noted and appreciated!
An often overlooked factor by people (especially my dad) when it comes to using quality engine oil or not.
