Timing belt or timing chain

TB or TC on a 370? If a belt, what is the maintenance interval. How difficult did they make it to do?

The 370Z is a timing chain.

Re: Timing belt or timing chain

Thank the Lord! What about the 350?

I know the prior model was a belt...enough reason for me to stay away.

Re: Timing belt or timing chain

No VQ engine has a timing belt. That was the VG engine

Re: Timing belt or timing chain

Since we are checking for potential maintenance problems.

I have come accross numerous posts on the net about 350Z transmissions (both auto & manual) being very weak & needing replacement. It appears they fail out right. Does the 370Z use the same transmissions as the 350Z?
