2004 Honda Civic belt change

I have a 2004 Honda Civic VP with almost 70,000 miles on it. Do I need to get my belts replaced now, or at around 100,000 miles, like my manual says? I drive in ''normal'' conditions; I live in California, so no extreme weather, etc. I can't get a straight answer to this one!

Intervals between timing belt changes Honda Civic 1.4s 2008 thanks


The info I have seen is about 150,000 mi.
But it is really dependent on the wear on the belts is in certain different climates.
The belts can break at any time. 150,000 is just a rough estimate.

Some engines will be damaged if the belt is broken, like Hondas, others will not, like my old Pinto.
So it's a gamble, we all have to guess and hope it's accurate.

So I would say "ask your Honda dealer."

Hope this helps.

2004 honda civic sedan since november 2003 40,000 miles and dealer says timing belt needs to be changed live in seattle


Although your milage is very low your belt is do by time.Alot of times i consider the wear of the external belts because the timing belt will wear similar to them and considering the cost of replacing a timing belt as a maitenence compared to a failure I would definitely do it now.

Hi .. 2004 Honda Civic EX at 61000k miles .. going to purchase , when is the timing belt to be changed ? pls advice.. asap . so as to finalise the deal .. also 60 k maintaince is not done.. so that...


Timing belt need to be done around 100K miles. You might want to check the brakes. Fronts struts are known to leak on this model car. Trans fluid will need to be replace. Air filter and pollen filter might need to be replace if dirty. I worked on Honda for 8 years and this model doesn't have too many major problem, but I can't say that for the one you're buying.
good luck

Just bought a 2004 Honda Civic VTech with 37000 miles. When does Honda recommend changing the timing belt?


Do you mean inside the engine(timing belt)?Or do you mean tensioner belt which is attached to a/c,alternator,fan etc.?If you mean tensioner belt(which seems more like what you are asking),then it just needs to be inspected periodically.If there are frays,knicks,or cracks,then it needs changing.They may have a requirement,I am not sure,but when companies have set scheduling like 30K,or 50K mile checkup,it is more likely to require inspection to determine replacement needs,rather than a definitely change at such and such miles.Good luck!

When to change timing belt on 2004 honda civic


Honda reccomends timing belt change at 100k. Most Honda dealers like you to change the belt at 90,000 miles (90k). some auto repair places will want to change the belt at 60k but that is not necessary (Note: if in a severe cold or hot climate like florida or canada you would change the belt before 90k or if the belt is over 7 years old.. Good luck:

1995 Honda civic - Replaced a bad water pump, and the timing belt broke. replaced the timing belt, but the car don't start. Won't tun over. Help


Not at all unusual for the timing belt to break and cause major mechanical problems inside of your engine. A failed timing belt can totally destroy your engine due to the extremely close clearences. That's why the strongly recommend a preventative replacement of the timing belts in all Hondas and Toyotas at specified mileage frequencies between 70,000 and 120,000 miles. Change the timing belt before it destroys the engine. You may now be at a point where only the Honda Dealer or authorized garage may be able to help diagnose the problem.
