Hi, what is the mileage/time required for 2004 Civic to change timing belt? With/without water pump? thx


I would change the timing belt approximately every 80,000 mi. This is a guideline only that I have used on my 1979 Honda, and it still seems to be the right mileage for changing the timing belt on newer Hondas such as yours.

What is Ford's recomendation (mileage) for replacing the serpentine belt on a 1998 Ford Explorer?


Theres no mileage to change just to check it, the way to check the belt is to look at the inside of the belt and you will see grooves in which the belt rides, if you see cracks in the belt then its time tom replace. the belt should be looked at every oil change it thats no time to check. hope this is helpful.

BMW recommends that the timing belt be changed every second Inspection ii, or every 4 years on cars that have low mileage. Most of the rest of the industry has timing belt changing intervals ranging from 40,000 miles to 60,000 miles. It is better to change the belt at a lower mileage than at a higher number.
The timing belt must be replaced every time the belt tensioner is loosened. Do not reinstall a used belt. Reusing a timing belt, even one with low mileage, is not worth the chance of having a belt break and damaging the engine.

Good luck.

Ford fusion 3 1600 diesel cam belt mileage change


75,000 miles for heavy urban city driving.
100,000 miles if you drive a lot of freeway.
Mix driving should be under 90,000 miles.
If your the timing guide (on the side of the timing belt cover) making noise then you should change it ASAP.
A loose timing belt will offset timing on the injector and decrease mileage.

Timing belt


A dealer told my son in law to change the timing belt at least once before it reached 80000 miles. I would probably change it at 60, maybe 70.
