Good news. No! You're in luck and the only time you change these are when they begin to make noise. Enjoy your new car.

I have 115,000 miles on my car and it runs great. Do I need to worry about the timing chain/belt replacement?


If it has a timing belt, the belt should have been replace at around 80,000 miles. So you are running on borrowed time.
If it has a chain, the chain and gears are designed to last the life of the engine, or around 200,000 miles.

Need to no after how many miles we have to change the timing belt


It is recommended that a timing belt should be change every 100,000km. Honda's and Acura's especially. Whenever the water pump is changed, it is also wise to change the timing belt too as it is all in one spot, and VS. In some cars, [Acura's], when the timing belt breaks, it also can tear your valves in your engine apart, so I hope that this answers your question

Timing belt ... when does it need replacing


Generally speaking for most cars the timing belt should be replaced every 50-100 thousand miles. The main cause for concern comes into play when you hear your timing belt squeal or make a loud noise. All you have to do is look an feel. Usually if there is slack or not enough of it you will have to replace it.

When do I need to replace the timing belt? My


Hello michele151: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The manufacturer recommends replacing the belt at 60,000 miles and inspecting the belt at 30,000 miles. This would also be a good time to check the water pump as the timing belt turns it also. I always recommend replacing the timing belt with a timing kit as this way you also have the parts to replace the idler bearings at the same time. these are small bearings that turn a million times and do wear out. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer as this way I know it was of use. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

You need to get a manual. Try the Haynes manual for your car. Try autozone; generally available for around $20. This is not the type of thing that can be covered here in enough detail to do you any good. You need a picture.
Buy new timing belt. Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove timing belt cover. make sure cylinder #1 is set at TDC. making sure all components are properly aligned and loosen pensioner to remove old timing belt. Install new timing belt. Tension belt, ensure all components are aligned properly, replace timing belt covers and reconnect battery.

I need to change the timing belt . i have a 2003 hyundai sante fe and the belts are squealling


If your belts are squealing it is the drive belt/belts that need attention not the timing belt. You need to check your belt tension and condition and replace as needed. If a timing belt ever got to the point that it might squeal the car would not run because it would be too far out of time. Your belts will all be external whereas at timing belt is internal and a major part of the engine.

Timing belt on 1996 mazda protege slips during startup


Hello, this to me sounds like your fan belt slipping (not timing belt). To adjust the fan belt you need to undo your bolt on the alternator, pull it tight onto the fan belt and while holding it tight do the bolt back up tightly. this will stop yoour fan belt from slipping. I hope this helps.

Belt or Chain


Yes those vehicles have timing belts instead of chains. I have yet to see a timing belt that doesnt need to be changed at some point. Maybe the tech meant you didnt need to change them now. Each manufacturer has their own mileage interval, but generally speaking, anywhere between 60,000 and 90,000 miles they are due to be replaced.
