Dodge Caravan Timing Belt Or Timing Chain (1984 - 2020)

From the model year 1984 to 2020, the Dodge Caravan has various engines with either a timing belt or a timing chain. It also has both interference and non-interference engines.

Scroll down to see specific data for your model year below.

The timing belt (or chain) maintains the proper synchronization between the various engine components in a combustion engine.

If the belt or chain stretches or breaks, it can lead to catastrophic engine damage.

Timing belts have a recommended replacement interval, while timing chains are generally rated for the engines lifetime, although they need to be inspected occasionally.
