It may not need a belt - most often the belt tensioner is what fails, rather than the belt. But you wouldn't want to put a 70k mile belt back on the engine after going in and doing all that work (or paying for all that work to be done). And further, maybe the tensioner is OK too...but are you willing to risk a $4000 engine swap if you're wrong? Do the service.

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.

When to change the timing belt on a 2003 Saturn ION?


yes. It is a good idea to change your timing belt on any vehicle at or before 70,000 miles. Heat off of the engine and time deteriorates any belt.

I have a 2000 Honda Accord- just hit 100,000. I know I should change the timing belt but I don't drive real far and can't afford it. What other things really MUST be done at 100,000?


IF YOU ARE SURE YOUR CAR HAS A TIMING BELT, IT SHOULD BE CHANGED ABOUT EVERY 60,000 OR 70,000 MILES IF YOU WAIT 'TIL IT BREAKS YOU WILL BE SORRY. IT COULD CAUSE MAJOR ENGINE DAMAGE, & MAJOR EXPENSES. GET THE BELT CHANGED

Timing belt replacement frequency


error definitely some issues with the early six-cylinder timing belts. There were some updates, including a dampener for one of the cams. See if you can get copies of the service bulletins for your engine. I think the belt may also be somewhat wider on the later engines. DO NOT use the later interval.
