Timing Belt or Chain?

Anyone know if the 2.0 uses a belt or chain? If it's a chain what's the recommended service interval?

This engine has a chain. NO timing belt. No service intervals for replacement.

I looked at the new Giulia TI and the motor uses a steel chain and not a belt. I told the Alfa dealer that I want to buy a Giulia QV Coupe. He said that it may take two or more years before the coupe is in the US.

Chain for gas engines and timing belt for diesel

Timing belt changing interval for diesel engines
Quote:
Areas that are not dusty: recommended maximum mileage 60,000 mi (100,000 km). The belt must be replaced every 5 years, regardless of distance travelled. Dusty areas and/or heavy conditions (cold climates, urban driving, long periods of idling): the recommended maximum distance is 36,000 mi (60,000 km). The belt must be replaced every 3 years, regardless of distance travelled.

As previously stated, both of the Giulia engines, 4 & 6 cylinder petrol variants currently available for sale in the USA, use timing chains. The 4 cyl locates the chain in the front of the engine, whereas the 6 cyl locates the chain at the rear of the engine. The 6 cylinder engine uses the valve covers as the upper camshaft bearing. This means that to replace the valve cover gaskets, you must remove the timing chain covers and release the chain tension on the camshafts. To perform this service the engine must be removed from the chassis. Ouch.
