I would have thought it should be done around 100,000 kms like most cars, but some makes are extending the service schedules for cambelts these days. If it has never been replaced, then it is imperative that it gets done very soon. Without getting too technical, if the cambelt was to break, the cam suddenly stops while the engine is running potentially leaving a valve wide open. The pistons keep moving as they are powered on by the motion of the vehicle, and they smash into the open valves, causing a great deal of damage to the engine internals. This sounds expensive and it is. Often it is cheaper to install a second hand engine than repair the old one after a broken cambelt. So yes, do it soon!!

Nancy, the Honda recommendations are to change belt 100,000 Km/ 60000 miles or every 7 years which ever occurs first. So if timing belt has not been changed, YES change it. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How many km can I travel with timing belt warning light on , and at what speed ? Toyota Raider , D4D , 3L , 2014 model


This light indicates the timing belt is due for replacement either by mileage or age through a computer monitor. The engine will continue to operate normally and you can travel at whatever spped you like. Witout knowing year/make/model..... The average timing belt replacement interval on most vehicles is 7 yr or 160,000 km. You can be asking for trouble on some makes/models if you go much past this recommended interval

What is the interval for replacing a timing belt for a 2005 subaru forester


160,000 km major service. Anything over 150,000, think about getting it done, There's a set of bearing and the hydraulic tensioner (sometimes water pump) as well that should be done at the same time.

When does the timing belt need to be replaced on a 2000 GS 300 with 55,000. Is it miles or years?


Most manufactures recommend changing the Timing belt at around 60,000 miles / 100,000 Km or 7 years, whichever comes first. They have been known to last a lot longer than that but it is cheaper to have it replaced than to risk critical and expensive engine damage if it breaks.

Is the timing belt replacement link with the number of Km (90000) only or also with the car life. In other word my A4 19 TDI is 2003 and has got 55000 km when shall i replace the timing belt?


Even your car Audi A4 1.9 TDI has got 55000 km and the timing belt replacement is due at 90000 km, the car was made in 2003. I strongly recommend you to change now the timing belt in order to prevent any risk!

2003 nissan xterra v-6 does it have a timing chain or belt and if it has a belt when does it need to be changed?


It has a timing belt, not a chain. Easy enough to check your owners manual. From memory, belt is to be replaced at about 100,000 miles or 160,000 km give or take.

Timing belt replacement


This is the timing belt replacement procedure to 1999 Vovlo V70
with the B5254s engine

1) Lift power steering and anti-freeze resevoirs slightly and disconnect electrical connector for antifreeze sensor. Then carefully lift both resevoirs and position it on top of the valve cover.

2) Relieve the tension from the serpentine belt tensioner pulley and remove the serpentine belt.

3) Remove the screw holding the plastic timing belt cover and carefully remove the cover.

4) Locate the timing marks on the camshaft pulleys. I highlighted the marks with paint to make them easier to see. I took a dab of white touch up paint and put it on each mark, then waited a minute and then wiped the excess paint carefully, leaving a white line for the mark. The mating marks for the cam gears is on the upper cam gear cover. The marks are rectanular cutouts on the underside of the cover. I was unable to line up the marks unless standing on my head so I extended the marks to the outside of the cover with a white painted dot. This trick made life much easier.

5) Reinstall the timing gear cover.

6) Place a 32mm socket on the crankshaft pulley and connect a breaker bar to the socket. Slowly rotate the engine crankshaft (clockwise) until the camshaft timing marks are aligned with the marks on the gear cover. (I preferred to do this job with the spark plugs installed. I found it easier to keep the engine in time by using the engine compression).

7) Remove the vibration damper by removing the 32mm nut and remove all of the 10mm screws. Carefully pry the pulley from the shaft. There is an alignment pin which allows the pulley to be installed only one way. With the vibration damper removed you can now check the timing alignment with the crankshaft and it's witness mark.

8) Remove the small timing belt shield from the underside of the crankshaft. This shield is helt in place with 2 screws.

9) Loosen the ttiming belt tension and remove the old timing belt.

10) This is a good time to check the waterpump for any signs of wear or leaks. Mine was leaking after 101,000 miles. I also replaced the tensioning pulley and used Volvo OEM parts. (The old Volvo parts lasted 100,000 miles, that is good enough for me).

11) Reverse the procedure for installing the new timing belt.

12) After the belt is installed and properly tensioned, put the breaker bar with the 32mm socket onto the vibration damper and rotate the engine (clockwise) slowly until your timing marks are again aligned. If they are not, remove and reinstall the belt. Don't get frustrated just think of all of the money you have saved by doing this job yourself.
