I am a newbie and to some my question may seem stupid, but I need to know if anyone know if the engine runs on a time chain or time belt. If it is a belt when should it be changed

Chains. :) The last 3-series with a belt (if I remember correctly) was the M20B25 SOHC engine in the 80's 325is. Or possibly the M42 1-4. But in short, it's a chain. ;)
