How often does a timing chain on a Mazda 3 2013 model need to be changed. At what kms? Thank you in advance 🙏🏻
The owner's manual for 2013 Mazda3 specifies two different maintenance schedules:
- Schedule "A" for normal use
- Schedule "B" for severe use
Schedule A, normal use, calls for the drive belts every 37,500 mi / 60,000 km. See page 8-5 in the manual.
Schedule B, severe use, calls for the drive belts every 35,000 mi / 56,000 km. See page 8-7 in the manual.
Since Mazda does not specify any required replacement of the timing chain, you should be good for at least 150,000 to 200,000 miles (240,000 to 320,000 km).
