Hello tinaromano1: The factory specification are to replace the belt every 90,000 miles in severe service. I would recommend to replace at 90,000 no matter what the service would be. Keep in mind should the belt break there is always a chance engine damage may occur. Should you need further help just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

Assume that an average driver does between 10-15K per year. If recommendation is 90K, then average change interval in years should be seven to eight years. Driving is not the only thing that causes the belt to fail...as with any rubber item, the rubber hardens over time (dry rot) and will begin to crack.
This can often be seen on old tires that have hard rubber compounds (such as perelli) cracks appear in sidewalls about an inch from wheel. Your belt is not a tire, but the rubber reacts the same way!
Some people say you can leave the timing belt on for up to 140-150K. I would never do this on anything I owned and would therefore not recommend anyone else do it. (even though it's expensive, it's less than a new engine}

Call a local Wrecking yard and ask them what the interchange is. I know there are some ratio differences between the years. And you have to match the front and rear tooth for tooth.

To remove the belt on the alternator side, loosen the the 14 mm nut and bolt that pivots the alternator and loosen the the 12 mm bolt that allows you to slide the alternator loose. The other belt that connects the power steering and the air condition compressor is a little trickier. You must loosen the the 14 mm nut that pivots the power steering but do not remove the nut completely. There are two other nuts, one 13 mm that can be reached below the vehicle looking upward that must be loosen. This creates the tension needed to release the belt. The last 14mm nut is located on a plate afixed to the side of the engine that is slotted. A special swivel type 14mm wrench is needed becuase there is not much room to work with. Once this is loose you will be able to loosen the belt to be able to take the belt off. If you can not take off this nut, your only recourse is to pry off the old belt with a screw driven and place the new belt in by hand by using the pulleys and rotate the belt manually on. This takes patience ans muscle. Once the belts are in place nmake sure to tighten the nuts and bolts to attain between 1/4" to 3/8" deflection arounf the center of the belts between the pulleys.

60,000 miles, water pump not driven by timing belt' replace idler pulley's and not bad idea to replace crank and camshaft seals.
