RA Rodeo Timing Belt

Hi all,
Quick question that I need some advice on. My ute has done 250,000kms now and I'm wondering when the timing belt/chain needs to be replaced.
Can anybody shed some light for me?
Has anybody got this many kms on their RA yet?

Cheers,
Andrew.

From someone from holden who builds the engine in melbourne for Isuzu. I can tell you it certainly does have a timing chain in it if the engine is a petrol otherwise how would the camshaft turn around and around. Don't know for sure but I reckon because it's got a chain in it and not a belt you wouldn't need to touch it for the life of the car although I could be wrong.

Pezz has a diesel, as does Ducky, who is a diesel mechanic. Question solved I thought.

I suppose I should just go and talk to the Holden dealership then. Hopefully they'll shed some light on the issue for me.
I thought that my ute had some kilometres on it but I was talking to a mate who's ute has 290,000. He's never changed any belts/chains or anything in his.

As SteelJockey said, Ducky is the one in the know.
I checked this out about 6 or so months ago when mine hit 200,000km.
Knowing yours is the deisel of the same ilk as Ducky's and mine i can 2nd that its all timing gears, with no chain or belt. Confirmed this with a look at the Isuzu factory workshop manual.

2.8 (4JB-XX)and 3.0 (4JH1-TC)diesels (non common rail) are gear driven.
2.4 (C24SE) 2.6 (4ZE1) 3.2 & 3.5 (6VE1) Petrol motors use Timing Belts.
3.6 Petrol uses a chain I think (don't quote me on this one)

Re: RA Rodeo Timing Belt

Ducky is right, the diesel Ra is gear driven and there is no replacement recommendation which would indicate it should last the life of the motor.
