Timing

I just bought myself a 2000 mustang gt 5 speed with 106xxx miles on her. She runs great and all fluids look good. I was wondering if and how to know when the timing chain needs to be changed? All help is welcomed cause I'm new to the v8 family.

First of all welcome to the dark side.....here have a cookie lol. Welcome to the family. As to a timing chains while most of the time they do not require replacement i guess a safe bet would to estimate around 150k miles. Although ive seen many v8 run for a long time without timing chains replaced. Its really up to you the owners. If you do replace it i would recommend oem chains and change the timing chain guides. The guides are plastic and they due break. Upgrade to the metal ones better. Im sure more people will chime in welcome and hope you grow with knowledge here as there is much here within this forum

Thanks I appreciate the help. I gonna clean her up and clean up the engine with some degreaser and then take some carb cleaner into the intake. She runs and sounds great.
