Timing Chain question for 2004 Accord 4 cyl

Does my 2004 4-cyl accord have some sort of belt that I need change such as a timing belt? I nearly have 100k on it already. I read on the net that the 4cyl has a chain not a belt but that's about all I know. Any info would be very helpful, thanks

BTW, I just feel guilty doing nothing to this car. It just runs and runs and runs and asks nothing in return from me

Nope, you have a chain! Congratulations!

But you might want to double check your drive/serpentine belt at 105k.

Pcv valve norm breaks around 60k. Replace with an oem one.

Serpentine belt(oem) that drives the accessories.

Engine air filter and cabin air filter.

ATF - very important to change this every so often. 15k-30k depending on how it's used.

Thanks everybody for your comments and help. Ok, will do a search on how to test this belt for wear.

I change often the ATF in my CRV and Element but have never done it on the accord yet as it seems to run so good, but I'll get on it too, thanks.

Shoot...just remembered another item. New coolant type II Honda. I think the interval on that is 110k so you have some time. New plugs are due around this time but look it up in the owners manual for the exact mileage interval.

Brake fluid every 3 years give or take.

No flushes with the atf esp since the car has 100k on it. Drain and fills only. I'd do 3 of them.
