Hi,

Can anyone tell me 'if' the 230 engine has belt or chain driven cams and if so, do they need changing after so many miles?

It uses a timing chain. Some guys change them out but they do last quite a long time depending of course on previous maintenance of your vehicle and km's/miles. Timing belts of course fail more frequently. If you do replace it make sure you do the new sprockets as well as the old worn ones will probably cause rapid chain wear.
