Default Timimg belt

How do you know when it needs to be changed? Just rolled over 100k.

Well, none of the motors in a 2003 ranger have timing belts, they all run off of chains.

Your 3.0 V6 has a timing chain.

Good to know, thanks. Do timing chains require any maintenance like timing belts?

Nope. Only when the motor gets rebuilt.

You don't, because you don't have a timing belt, you have a timing chain.
