All mini van 4 cyl engines have a timing belt, except for very early models with the Mitsubishi 2.6 which used a chain. Timing belt should be replaced along with water pump before 105,000 miles or 84 months which ever is sooner.

2.5s and 2.2s are non interfearance engines , most mechanics say drive them until the belt breaks. Sometimes they last alot longer then suggested change intervals.

True, but where will you be when the belt breaks? certainly not in you driveway or at the repair shop. That being said, my 92 sundance with only 55,000 miles but 192 months is on it's original belt :(
