English translation:timing chain (possible "belt")
Explanation:
Timing belts replaced the older style timing chains that were common until the 1970s and 1980s (although in the last decade there has been reemergence of chain use for many carmakers). Some manufacturers, such as BMW, are known for utilizing timing chains, because of their durability.[1]

disagree  Julio Almeida: La traducción correcta es “Timing belt”. No estoy de acuerdo con la fuente, el término correcto en español debería ser “correa de distribución” o “correa de sincronización”
