Your Lancer should have a timing belt. There is no grace period on changing them, follow what the manufacturer says. You have a interference engine and should the belt fail while you are driving down the highway engine damage will happen.

When is the timing chain of a 2007 1.5 4x4 daihatsu terios changed?


Timing chains do not need changed until they break or get so loose that they jump a tooth on the chain. But if you have a timing belt instead of a timing chain, it does need to be changed before it breaks. Replace the timing belt every 60,000 miles. Severe engine damage will occur if you do not replace the timing belt every 60,000 miles.

When do i need to get the timing belt replaced?


Both timing belt and chain can wear out. A loose timing chain can result in poor running, valve clatter, and loss of power, while a broken timing belt can cause your engine to stop running or, on an interference application, cause your valves to crash into your pistons.
Timing belts fail without warning and on some vehicles, are almost as hard to check as they are to change. In most cases, your only protection is to change the belt at the recommended intervals. The timing belt should also be inspected at every oil change for evidence of abnormal wear and tear. Your vehicle owner's manual will recommend at what mileage the timing belt must be replaced. These intervals range from every 60,000 miles to every 105,000 miles. Timing belt replacement is not cheap, but it is extremely important nonetheless.

I have 103,500 miles on my 2002 nissan sentra when should I change the timing chain


The timing chain doesn't really have a maintenance period. They don't have a habit of breaking or stretching. Timing belts on some vehicles do have a recomended replacement period. Locate your local NTB, Firestone, or Sears for the maintenance schedule.

TIMING CHAIN CHANGE


hyundai recommends replacing the belt every 60,000 miles or 48 mos and this is an "interference" engine which means if the belt breaks, it will cause internal engine damage. happy holidays

Is valve adjustment a part of normal maitenance on Suzuki Esteem


When you hear some tapping, that's why you need -valve adjustments. At 137,000miles you probably need more than that to continue your trouble-free drives.

How often to change timeing belt/chain on 1992 pontiac bonneville v6 3.8 engine


Usualy the only time you would change the belt/chain is when the timing is off.. If you want to get changed it would not hurt things. The more new parts you have the better it runs. If it has never been changed on a vehicle that old and you have the money go ahead.. Hope that helps..

You will need to replace the timing belt and the balance shaft belt (if applicable). Your car may not have a balance shaft belt. Mitsubishi did away with that belt, but I can't remember what year it started. At 60,000 miles. And again at every 60,000 miles. You should also replace the accy drive belts at that time. If you don't replace the timing belt and it breaks, severe engine damage WILL happen. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Timing chain maintenance


It's actaully a timing belt, not a chain. But the mileage recommendation i believe is 60,000 or 90,000 miles.
