You can drive it till it breaks of course, that will cost much more then replacing it as maintenance though. I would plan to have it changed much sooner then later as you are already past your recomended service time.

Most manufactures recommend changing the Timing belt at around 60,000 miles or 7 years. The 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.

When to change the timing belt on a 2003 Saturn ION?


yes. It is a good idea to change your timing belt on any vehicle at or before 70,000 miles. Heat off of the engine and time deteriorates any belt.

I have a honda civic 2007 with 94000 miles on. should I replace the timing belt??


from 2003 to 2007 inline 4 cyl, models have timing chains, that do not require replacing. All of these engines are INTERFERENCE engines. If the belt breaks you WILL have serious engine damage. if a rubber timing belt, honda says about 100,000 miles. have a good day !!

Does a 2003 cavalier have timing belt or chain?


Most overhead valve engines have a belt. You need to get your engine size, make, model and year and call your local parts house and they can tell you this for sure.

Hi, i have a 2003 toyota camry v6. everyone is saying the the bearings will need to be changed if i am going to change the timing belt. is this true thanks


If you change the timing belt it is reccomended to also change the tensioner and idler pulleys as well, depending on the mileage. You can change just the belt but it is a little risky, considering you can't actively see what's going on in there. If your timing belt slips on that engine, There's a good chance of doing major damage.

2003 santa fe with 130,000 miles, had timing belt replaced at 60,000 miles. Should it be replaced now at 130 k ?


Your Hyundai's engine is an interference engine, meaning that if the timing belt breaks the engine will suffer major damage. At least a valve job, probably the head being replaced and in the worst case an engine replacement.

The recommended replacement interval for a timing belt is 60k, your already over so I would replace it as soon as feasible.

Does my Civic have a timing chain or a timing belt


It has a timing belt. Recommended to be replace every 105,000 miles, timing belt also run's your water pump good idea to also replace, your engine is also an INTERFERENCE ENGINE which will damage your cylinder head valve's if timing belt goes bad. Hope this was very helpful.

2004 Kia Rio Timing Belt


Typically timing belts need to be replaced every 60,000 miles, in order to prevent them from breaking or loosing teeth and leaving you stranded, or possibly damaging the engine. I doubt the timing belt is causing your engine vibration issue. I would suspect that a good tune up would take care of that problem.

2003 Honda Civic -LX Timing belt


90000 Miles on the Timing Belt. Do not let this go! A timing belt failure can cause internal engine problems.

Should cost around 200 or so, depending upon your local labor rates.

Good Luck!
