Timing Belt or Timing Chain ?
Does the 2.0L in the 2009 Mazda 3 have a timing belt or a timing chain? If it is a timing chain is there a normal schedule or even a recommended interval for its replacement? (My previous car which was a Chev Cavalier with 2.2 Ecotec and had a timing chain which owners have found should be replaced at 160,000km because they have a tendancy to break and cause major engine damage.)
