2003 Outlander timing belt replacement

At the dealership they recomend to replace the T.B. at 100,000 km
It seems to me that all previous cars I owned had this service at 150,000 km. Is it necesssary to do the replacement at that early milage?

Make sure you have them change the waterpump as well since its in the same location. That should only be one hour to do on top of the belts.

Most cars require the change from 60 to 90 thousand miles. What the manufacturer is saying is that once your car reaches 100 thousand miles it could fail at any time afterwards. For instance, take two identical vehicles and one cars belt may fail at 105 thousand but the other may last 130. Your taking a chance from that point on. The most important thing to find out is whether or not the engine is a interference or noninterference type. When the belt fails on interference type engines, expensive engine damage can occur.

    I have to make a correction, the question was refering to 100,000 kilometers and I made reference to 100,000 miles. Most makes require a change at 65,000 miles which is equal to 100,000 kilometers. However I have seen some honda's recommended change at 90,000 miles.

60,000 miles or 96,560 kilometers is about the longest amount of time and mileage to run on a timing belt. They might be lasting longer than that, but they can also fail at anytime after that.

Time belt how maney miles do you change it


Hello,

The timing belt of the car is to be changed after it has run 60000 miles. Try to change it once it is approaching the 60000 miles, if not it might damage the entire engine and it will cost You a lot more to replace the engine than replacing just the timing belt.

If You need the steps to replace the timing belt, You can call back for more assistance. I will be so glad to be of assistance to You once again.

Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

2003 nissan xterra v-6 does it have a timing chain or belt and if it has a belt when does it need to be changed?


It has a timing belt, not a chain. Easy enough to check your owners manual. From memory, belt is to be replaced at about 100,000 miles or 160,000 km give or take.

At what mileage should I change the timing belt on a 2004 Mitsubishi Outlander. Thanks Sherry


It is suggested by any mechcanic to perform this maintenace every 80,000 miles if you properbly maintain your vehicle. That mean going by the owners manual suggestions. Also I would highly recomend changing the water pum as well for it runs off this belt and water pumps only last as long as the belt will also. If a new belt is installed without a new water pump it may fail in no time. I seen it happen more than a dozen times in the past ten years

The water pump failure sounds fishy to me. I avoid dealerships at all cost. They tend to overcharge , and fix unnecessary stuff.
The timing belt on the other hand should have been done at 100,000 km / 60,000 mi

When to change the timming belt for kia sedona 2002


The dealer recommends the timing belt be replaced at 60,000 miles if it is a rubber timing belt. Newer Sedona models have a metal chain timing belt that don't need to be replaced so soon.
