IT should have been changed when the engine was rebuilt. You change them out every 105,000 miles so I would call the place that rebuilt your engine and ask them if they replaced the timing belt or look on your receipt. But when you rebuild a engine the timing belt should ALWAYS be replaced. If this helped please rate.

I have a '97 Infiniti QX4 with 150,000 Miles on it and I have not changed the timing belt. Is it safe to drive it the way it is? I know you are supposed to replace it after 105000 miles. Is there something...


you can have a look at the state of the belt, make sure its not fraying or missing parts, but you should change it as soon as possible if the belt snaps the cost will be a new engine at worst. min damage a new head. a new timing belt and timed up will cost the lesser of the two. timing belt can cost less than you think.

This engine uses a timing chain not a timing belt, a timing chain never needs to be replaced unless it fails or the engine is being rebuilt

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.

Timing belt broke...was told i need new engine..is this right?


The 2.4L four has a belt and is not an interference engine according to the Gates timing belt application chart for your vehicle (check it out on Gates.com.) The 2.7L V-6 doesn't show that it needs a belt--so it has either a timing chain and gears or just gears. If the belt broke on the 2.4L four, you should be able to put on a new belt and go. The engine should not be damaged.

If the timing chain on the V-6 broke then engine damage may have occurred. Chain engines are sometimes not listed as interference because breaking a chain is so rare. The damage would probably be bent valves and damaged piston tops. The labor involved in repairing all that might cost more than just getting a rebuilt engine and putting it in.

Timing belt replacement interval


My rule of thumb for Timing belts:
replace at 60,000 miles, and every 40,000 miles thereafter. Having said that, I often let
cars go until the timing belt starts showing signs of wear (usually every 50K - 75K miles)

But www.autozone.com (register free at www.autozone.com) is recommending for your
car driving in "severe driving conditions" (aka normal stop-start driving) that your 2000 Sonata
have:
60,000 miles - replace
90,000 miles - inspect for wear
120,000 miles - replace
150,000 miles - inspect for wear

The 155 page owners manual (I found one at the link below - you may prefer to try Hyundai)
makes no mention of the timing belt at all.

1997 toyota carolla at 112,000KM what are the additional maintenance requirements, ie timing belt, water pump, spark plugs, etc I have a generic maintenance log which does not provide specifics,...


Timing belt inspection is in order, and if the timing belt is replaced, then the water pump should be replaced also. I have inspected timing belts on many engines that have over 150,000 miles on them and found the timing belt was perfect. It is hard to say why some vehicles wear out a belt moe than others, but replacing the belt is good insurance. As for the plugs, I would just replace them. They will wear out sooner than any timing belt.

Timing belt jumped... why?


This can be caused by not tensioning the belt corectly.When fitting a new belt you should allways replace the tensioner,and make sure the water pump pulley is in good working order.Its always wise to get your timming belt from the dealer.as others are nown to be faulty.Fit new belt follow manuel when doing so.good luck

Timing belt


Are all of the timing notches on the belt and pulleys lined up correctly?

It is possible to do serious damage to the engine by fitting the timing belt incorrectly.
