1995 accord timing belt schedule


If the timing belt has been replaced recently, a mechanic can inspect it taking the cover off, and tell you, that won't cost big money.

If it has been replaced 50K miles ago it wont be possible to know.

If the car has 114K miles, I suggest taking it to a mechanic and replacing the timing belt.

WHY AND WHEN DO I NEED TO CHANGE THE TIMING BELT ON A 2000 HONDA ACCORD, 6 CYLINDER?


Every 100,000 miles or so you need to change the timing belt as it is the cornerstone to the engine. If the timing belt fails, and your engine is an interference engine, it can make the valves smash into the pistons which will need a full rebuild ($$$$) or replacement.

Don't scrimp on the timing belt, get one direct from Honda or at the very least a very good blueprint. A few hundred dollars getting a new one and installing it will save thousands in case it breaks.

yes a bent valve is a very hard task, you must of couse pull the engine cylinder head off and then replace the valve, this takes special tools.

What else needs to be changed when doing a timing belt on a 1999 honda accord? and about how much should it cost?


Technically, nothing else needs to be changed when replacing a timing belt, however it is recommended or suggested to replace the timing belt tensioner and water pump while doing the belt. These items are only accessable when doing a timing belt. The cost should be under $100.00

Changing a timing belt on a 2001 Honda Accord


All of your fan belts needs to be taken off because the timing belt is located beneath the crankshaft pulley. There is a possibility that you may need to lift the motor off its motor mounts to gain access to the timing belt. Remember, the timing belt can't be seen from the outside.

Belt name


I have a 92 Accord, and there are only 2 belts that he can be referring to, one is the drive belt, which spins (drives) the power steering pump, a/c compressor, water pump, etc. the other is probably the one he is referring to, that's the timing belt. Honda recommends it be changed every 90k miles. If this belt isn't changed every 90k, it may break, and the accord has what is called an 'interference-' engine. This means that if the belt breaks, the valves and the pistons will strike one another, causing extreme damage to the engine. Note that if it is time to change the timing belt, u should also change the water pump, as it is easy to do at this time, and will cost much more down the road if u have to change it later, paying someone to disassemble much of what was done to replace the belt. Let me know if u have any other questions, or if I didn't answer your question clearly.
