Expert:  Robert replied 2 years ago.

Hi..there..

 

Ok..Asuming you have the Fourth Gen Mondeo as 2007 was roughly the change over from the mk3 to mk4 - then the 1997cc diesel "or 2.0TDCI 16v (duratorq)" on the fourth gen mondeo will be a Timing belt engine..I can double check if you can also supply the registration number...I do hope this helps

Expert:  Robert replied 2 years ago.

Hi.there thanks for your info..

 

Ok..i have your car details now.. as above in my last post all info is correct as per your car - having a timing belt - it does also have small timing chain too being 16valve it will have two camshafts so one shaft thats driven by the timing belt will drive the other via that small timing chain inside the rocker cover..No replacement interval for that - but the timing belt has a recommended replacement interval of upto or nearing every 125,000 miles/120 months which ever comes first.includes the t-belt /tensioner pulley/ idler pulleys.Sometimes alot of people find it better to actually do it alot earlier than whats been stated say around or upto every 80,90,000miles if prefered..I do hope this helps further..if you need to ask anything else or include anything further then just continue before you rate...
