Your "question" does not make it clear what exactly you are asking. Do you want to know the recommended change intervals for the timing belt on your car, or do you actually want to know how to change it yourself? If it's the former then you can either look it up online or call the dealer and tell them the exact model and year of your car. If its the latter all I can say is I'm not sure you know enough about cars to be replacing a timing belt. If you put it on wrong, very bad things could happen. You also might want to find out if you have an interference engine or a non-interference engine. With the latter you do not have to worry about your engine being totally destroyed should the old belt break before you have it replaced.

How many miles before i change the timing belt,and head gasket on a city rover 2006 model solo

There is no set mileage to change a head gasket. You only replace the gasket if you have a problem with it. Change the timing belt as outlined in your owners manual. If you do not have an owner's manual, then call your local Land Rover dealer for the correct mileage to change the belt.

Different cars have different mileages for changing timing belts. I've seen it as low as 35,000 and as high as 100,000 miles. This information would be in your owner's manual, if not in a section titled for timing belts then it would be listed on the maintenance schedule chart. You best bet would bwe to check with the manual and go from there. Hope this helps.

When do i need to get the timing belt replaced?

Both timing belt and chain can wear out. A loose timing chain can result in poor running, valve clatter, and loss of power, while a broken timing belt can cause your engine to stop running or, on an interference application, cause your valves to crash into your pistons.
Timing belts fail without warning and on some vehicles, are almost as hard to check as they are to change. In most cases, your only protection is to change the belt at the recommended intervals. The timing belt should also be inspected at every oil change for evidence of abnormal wear and tear. Your vehicle owner's manual will recommend at what mileage the timing belt must be replaced. These intervals range from every 60,000 miles to every 105,000 miles. Timing belt replacement is not cheap, but it is extremely important nonetheless.

When should I change the timing belt on my 07 cx-7? It has 63200 miles on it,

In the absence of information from your owners manual ... I would say now is the time. ... 60,000 is a good rule of thumb and you certainly dont want it to break unexpectedly.

Changing a timing belt

If you are going to try changing it yourself you are going to need a repair manual. Owners manual do not have this kind of information in them. You must follow the repair procedure exactly or you can damage your engine. To check the belt you must remove the front engine covers. Mazda recommends to inspect the belt at 60,000 and replace at 105,000.

What are the service interval for items on the 2006 toyota prado

For oil and filter - every 3 -5,000 miles. rotate tires at same interval. air filter is on condition, so check it at oil change and clean it until it needs replacement. trans. fluid is on condition along with filter or I believe 60k miles. Belts and hoses are every 3 years or based on condition. Get a maintenance guide from an auto parts store or go to the dealer for an owner's manual, which will have all of this information.

Fluids often to change

My message doesn't spify what type of vehicle, so I'll say that if the water pump belt is different from the timing belt, them about 15000 miles for water pump, and 30,000 miles for timing belt.

If your system is drive by a serpentine belt, then changing just one belt will solve your problem.

Automatic transmission fluid should be about every 15,000 miles, and be sure to change the filter in the tranny at the same time.

If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.

When do i need to change my ford focus 18 tdci cam belt

It should be in your owners manual service intervals information,or i go by the 60k miles rule.Some cars now utilize a timing chain and gears like the Mazda 3,so it would be a good idea to call your local Ford dealer,and talk to the service department,as they can tell you the specifics as to whether your engine carries a belt or chain,and the service interval for timing belts.Timing chains generally don't wear out until around the 100k mark,but belts should be serviced at 60k miles as a general rule.
