I would recomend doing it now. I have heard of others waiting too long and usually if the belt breaks at high speeds your probably going to have some bent valves and a very costly repair. and even though replacing the timing belt is very very difficult, it's worth it in the long run. you might also change the Idler pully, water pump and spring tensioner, the are all under the timing cover and will prevent future problems.

I would recommend replacing the timing belt and 60,000 miles and most definitely at 90,000, you most definitely won't hurt anything to go ahead and replace it now.

2001 pt cruiser dont start after doing timing belt


If the car never had this staring fault earlier to changing of the belt . then you must remove and check again the timing settings.
This is very important so as not to damage key components with a wrong settings.

Timing belt replacement on a 2001 pt cruisre


Not for the beginner, I will be doing one on monday. 2001 Twin Cam.

I have been in repair for 30 years, I would not let anyone with less than 5 years experience touch it. This motor has the potential to bend valves if out of time between the cams and crank.

Changing the right side mount too. 10 hours according to the book (all data) and thats for someone that knows how.

2001 PT Cruiser quit running driving down highway


Most likely a cam sensor or a crank sensor. The timing belt didn't break did it? They also have an issue with the timing belt tensioner going bad and jumping a tooth.

2001 pt cruiser broke timing belt


CHECK AUTO ZONE .COM FOR TIMING PROCEEDURE. I HAVE DONE THIS & IT IS VERY HARD TO GET TIMING MARKS PERFECTLY LINED UP. TOOK ABOUT 3 TRIES. ( CAMS WANT TO MOVE DURING PROCESS.) WHEN TIMING IS JUST RIGHT , IT WILL RUN. MAKE SURE BOTH CAM SROCKET ARROWS ARE POINTING UP. THERE IS A TIMING MARK IN THE VALLEY OF THE EXHAUST CAM SPROCKET TEETH THAT I MISSED.YOU HAVE TO START WITH EXHAUST CAM TIMING MARK JUST BELOW INTAKE CAM SPROCKET TIMING MARK & THEN WHEN BELT IS COMPLETELY ON , MOVE EXHAUST CAM TO TAKE UP SLACK IN BELT. IT WORKS !!!
