Hello from Freemo!

Hi all,

Not long bought a 97 318i SE 4dr. I'm looking for a little help.

Does my car have a cam belt or cam chain? The car is running fine and has approx 115,000 miles on the clock but no service history, when do these belts need changing? Also the service light has come on with the red and amber lights illuminated, what does that indicate needs replacing?

Sorry to sound stupid, thanks for any help offered

Your car has a timing chain. If not yet done, the chain tensioner may need a look. But if there is no noise, it well have been cared for.
