Timing Chain or Belt?

Does the Fusion 3.0 V6 use a timing chain or a timing belt???

Thank you.

yep, they use a chain. Luckily, you get more mileage from a chain but it does add a little more engine noise.

From what I've read, Ford engines destignated with 'Duratec', are all chain driven.

Just pull off your oil cap -- there it is. But don't do it while the engine is running, it will spray you.
