Timing Belt. I bought this car used about two years ago with 87k miles on it, it now has about 117k miles on it, when should I change the timing belt on it?


Every 70k miles or so the belt should be replaced. Fairly easy for a mechanic to do and sound like it's due for one

I want replacing timing belt


First, why do you want to replace? Normally this is recommended every 10 years or 80k miles (US). It's not really possible to look at a belt and determine if it's worn or not. The procedure requires removal of the front radiator and carrier (part the headlight attach to) as well as special tool to lock the cam wheels in place. It is not a process for the average mechanic because of the potential for engine damage if done incorrectly. Cost at most independent shops (not dealer) is between 800 and 1200 dollars. My 01 A8L has 55k miles, but it probably the original belt so I will have replaced soon. Good luck.

With 2005 Peugeot 407 2.2 engine how often is regular maintenance done or at what intervals and when is the timing due to be serviced? Thank you


maintenance as in basic? Oil changes depend on the type of oil you use. General idea is about every 5000 miles, air filter and spark plug wires and spark plugs should be checked at 18k miles. not sure how long you've owned the car. The timing belt should be replaced at 100k miles, despite what your dealer says. Earliest at 80k miles.

Required maintenance for the 2005 kia spectra at 57,000 miles


Not sure if it helps you but the manufacturer suggests changing your timing belt around 60,000 miles. I did this at 80k and bought a kit which included a tensioner replacement. Labor intensive but if you don't do this you run the risk of damaging your engine to the point of having to replace it altogether.(if your timing belt should fail) When your timing belt fails your pistons can damage valves which may be left open due to the camshaft not being spun by the timing belt.Hope this helps a bit.... I now have enjoyed 122k miles of trouble free motoring in my 05 spectra..

I have a 2004 hyundai santa fe with 90000 miles. The timing belt has never been changed. How often should it be changed


It needs to be replaced ASAP> This vehicle has an interference engine which means that if the belt breaks the engine will need to be rebuilt/replaced due to the valves making contact with the piston and bending them. The belt should be inspected around every 10k miles, but should be seriously looked into being replaced at least around 80k miles. Also have them check the pulleys and the tensioner. If these are weak and worn out they should be replaced as well, so that you don't have any problems for some time.

When should i replace the timing belt in my 1997 nissan sentra it has 80k miles on it.


A good rough guide for any vehicle is to replace the timing belt every 60,000 miles. You're due for one if it's never been done before.

When should I change the timing belt for my Volkswagen 2002 golf!


If it's a 1.8l turbo, change it every 80k miles for safety. I've seen them break as early as 75k miles, If it's a 2.0l, then 105k miles is a good interval. ALWAYS replace the waterpump and tensioners, because w/o doing that, you might as well not do the belt. The belt dosen't break b/c of age in 99% of cases, it's b/c the water pump or tensioner locks up.

Does a Hyundai 2002 1.6L DOHC have a timing belt or chain? If it's a chain, does it need to be replaced?


If you have an Accent which I believe that you do, it has a belt which needs to be changed every 60-80k miles. This vehicle has what is called an interference engine which basically means that if the belt breaks, the engine will continue to turn BUT the camshaft stops. If any of the valves are open the piston will slam into the open valve (interfere) and you will be looking at a new engine. I would recommend changing the water pump at the same time as well as the tensioner. I would also have the pulleys inspected by a professional mechanic and replaced as needed. If you just change the belt and the tensioner or the pulleys are weak then you can have premature breakage.
