Hi there - thank you for your reply...

Mike :

Ok - the 05 3.0 Diesel doesn't have a belt - it is chain driven - so no worries there then ! There are no manufacturer change intervals for chains -as they don't wear like belt material.. The only need to change a chain ever is if it stretched...in which case it would become very rattly - noisy.

Mike :

So thats good news for you - saves you a lot of money ! ;)

Mike :

Please do click on the "OK ratings" for me at this point now - and I Thank You... and you are welcome back anytime. Kind Rgds, MIKE.
