the turbo 2.0L ecotec always used to be a chain. check your maintenance scedule...if there is no timing belt change interval; you have a chain.

Thanks tech2 for the reply.
Was able to confirm with Rock Auto the proper part # for timing chain for my 2.0L LZ2.

FYI successfully replaced my 245/40R19 Continentals with Michelin XICE3 225/55R17 on steel rims this winter.
Calibration still within 1% as far as speed and actual mileage (In Kms).
