At what milage(kilometres) does one need to change the timing belt/chain?


It depends on the vehicle, and the climate.
But a timing belt is expected to last for 60,000 miles and a timing chain should last the life of the engine, say 175,000 miles.
Some timing belt engines are interference engines, which means the valves can be damaged if the belt breaks while the engine is running. I recommend replacing the timing belt before 80,000 miles unless the vehicle runs in a hot climate.

How often do you need to change the oil in a 1997 RAV 4?


If you need to ask this question you should consult the service department at a toyota dealership.....
but i will save you the time and them the agony.... maximum i would change any oil in any vehicle is
5000 miles (8000kilometers) but as i say it never hurts to do it early. oil cahnges are cheap in comparision to replacement engines. break-in period of a toyota engine is closer to 20,000miles (32,00kilometers) in that time i would recommend replacing the oil at 100miles, 500miles, 1000miles, 2500miles and 5000miles on the odometer (not between changes).. break-in period is the most critical in an engines life. after that, regular oil changes make the difference between 150,000miles and 500,000 miles.

Transmission Issue. I have a 2005 Altima SE-R, 3.5L, auto trany. The transmission jerks, sometimes quite hard, while downshifting between 2nd and 1st usually when coming off the highway onto an off ramp...


This can be caused by a number of things, like a dirty transmission filter, sticky solenoid valve, or worn out transmission fluid. I would recommend that you change the fluid and filter as this should resolve the issue. Seafoam makes a transmission treatment that will not harm your transmission, is compatible with all fluid types, and resolves issues such as the one that you are experiencing. I would recommend that you use a can of it when you have your fluid and filter changed. Most people never change their transmission's fluid, and this is a major mistake, it would be the just like not changing your engine oil, causing premature damage. Transmissions do not require that you change the fluid as often as the engine oil, but nevertheless it is a fluid and does break down after extended periods of use.

How many miles or time period between oil change is recommended for Acura 2006 MDX? Is synthetic oil recommended or required?


Depends on driving style. Dusty roads? Lot of stop and go? Lot of short trips under 5 miles? Then 3000 miles is a good interval. If it's all highway miles then you can stretch it to 5000 miles. Synthetic is always better because of it's resistance to breaking down and loosing it's lubrication abilities. Hope that helps. I'm not sure if it's required in that car.

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 -->

Engine light coming on and loss of around 30 percent power while driving , engine still sounding great .


When is the last time you had done the service, the oil change, the tuning timing.? If this has not been done for the last several months, I recommend that this be done. Yo can take the vehicle to the dealership for an estimated cost before you decide. If this service is done periodically then you must check your fuel, fuel filters,timing and tuning. Helpful? Good day

I have 103,500 miles on my 2002 nissan sentra when should I change the timing chain


The timing chain doesn't really have a maintenance period. They don't have a habit of breaking or stretching. Timing belts on some vehicles do have a recomended replacement period. Locate your local NTB, Firestone, or Sears for the maintenance schedule.

No problem, just question on oil change,


I would recommend that you change your oil every 3,000 mile or 3 months which ever come first. This just help you keep a cleaner engine and keeps oil at Peak performance and provide excellent protection against sludge which developes with lack of oil change. Once a year seems too long for an oil change. However between oil changes you can add oil if needed. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Don't know that I have a problem


because thats where the parts have been tested and start to fail after that point. when a timing belt breaks no warning and if its happens at highway speeds the pistons could hit the valves and cost alot more
