Now. i think the interval is 75 to 80 miles for belts. double check that it doesn't have a timing chain. if it has the 2.4 ltr eng than you have timing chain and around 120k is fine.

After how many miles should the timing belt be changed


The timing belt replacement interval for your 3.5L engine is every 120,000 miles. I would also replace the water pump, the tensioner and idler pullies, and the cam and crankshaft front seals at the same time. All of these components will also have 120,000 miles on them and they will not last another 120K. Failure of any of these components will result in the timing belt having to be replaced again and/or severe engine damage.

Whatservice time is suggested that the timing /belt be changed for the 4 cylinder?


The normal service interval is from 90-120K miles based on driving conditions.
You should consider replacing the waterpump at the same time as it is driven off the timing belt.

What is the millage that requires changing of timing belt?


Factory (most) recommends every 60k miles (i.e. 60k, 120k, 180k...). But as we all know, lifespan of belts (and all other parts) varies, depending on the driving conditions, weather, maintenance etc. Best thing to do is to do a visual check, and look for signs of slack, cracks etc. I used to drive a civic and never changed my timing belt till around 130k miles, and that's after it was submerged in a flashflood. Although I'd never recommend doing what I did, but if you're a little mechanically sound - periodically checking your belt is what I'd recommend. It doesn't mean that ritually replacing timing belts every 60k miles'll guarantee it'll never break ;-)<!-- from fixya rte -->

I have an 2004 audi a4 63500 miles when does timing belt need changing or how can I tell if it was done recently


The timing belt interval used to be 120k, but after numerous timing belt breaks and a class action lawsuit against VAG, Adui has changed the interval to 80k..However, i have seen them break even at 70k miles. Unless you see paperwork that it has been done, just plan on replacement before 70k. Better safe than sorry, if it breaks it costs thousands!

What milage should you change the timing belt kia sportage


It's customary to change timing belt and water pump anywhere between 80K-120K miles.  I typically try to get them done on my vehicles before I reach 100K unless I'm having trouble before that.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating.

Service on a 2003 fx35 with 120k miles


Well if you ask Infiniti, everything. From belts to flushing all the fluids and of course plugs and wires. Estimated at $1,000.00 for the works. I would flush the trans. oil and the anti freeze, as well as spark plugs. Also check the belts to make sure no visible cracks.
