Default 2013 Buick Encore

Does the 1.4L turbo engine, with the 6 speed transmission have a timing chain or timing belt?

I think it is just the Toyota Echotech engine. I looked on Rockauto and they list a timing chain tensioner for it so I'm thinking a timing chain engine. Plus the Echotech is a Variable Valve Timing engine witch is harder to to with a timing belt system.

The ecotech engine is not a Toyota product. I work on Toyota everyday. I think that the ecotech engines are timing chain engines.

Opel and US-market Chevrolet versions of the Delta II platform compact cars use a turbocharged version of the 1.4 L engine with double variable cam phasing (DCVCP); in the future, an optional gasoline direct injection system will be introduced.[1] Opel versions feature Start&Stop system from 2011 and a Gen III block; a lower-power 120 ps version has been introduced as well. For MY 2013, the overboost to 220 Nm has been added. [2]

Applications:

2009–present Opel/Vauxhall Astra J
2010–present Opel/Vauxhall Meriva B
2011–present Opel/Vauxhall Zafira Tourer
2011–present Chevrolet Cruze
2012–present Chevrolet Sonic
2013–present Buick Encore
