2001 Honda Odyssey timing belt snapped , I need the re - timing procedure to do the job.


If this vehicle is equipped with the 3.5 engine and the timing belt has broken, chances are the valve/s are bent. This is an interference engine and the timing belt is meant to be changed at the appropriate mileage interval to prevent this type of engine damage. You may be in store for a lot more repair work than just a timing belt

How often does the timing belt need replacing?


Both timing belt and chain can wear out. A loose timing chain can result in poor running, valve clatter, and loss of power, while a broken timing belt can cause your engine to stop running or, on an interference application, cause your valves to crash into your pistons.
Timing belts fail without warning and on some vehicles, are almost as hard to check as they are to change. In most cases, your only protection is to change the belt at the recommended intervals. The timing belt should also be inspected at every oil change for evidence of abnormal wear and tear. Your vehicle owner's manual will recommend at what mileage the timing belt must be replaced. These intervals range from every 60,000 miles to every 105,000 miles. Timing belt replacement is not cheap, but it is extremely important nonetheless.

What is mileage to replace a timing belt on a 2004 Avalon


Typically any timing belt replacement interval is 60k-75k miles. The book will however tell you 90k. Now it depends on what engine your Avalon came with. The 3.0 is a non interference engine meaning if it does snap, it will not cause any damage to your engine. The 3.5L engine however i dont know if its a interference engine or not but i dont see anywhere where it says it is. As always suggested, change your water pump as well, as it runs off the timing belt. Once i didnt change the water pump and a week later it locked up on me and ruined my perfect new timing belt. Truth be told :) lol

BMW recommends that the timing belt be changed every second Inspection ii, or every 4 years on cars that have low mileage. Most of the rest of the industry has timing belt changing intervals ranging from 40,000 miles to 60,000 miles. It is better to change the belt at a lower mileage than at a higher number.
The timing belt must be replaced every time the belt tensioner is loosened. Do not reinstall a used belt. Reusing a timing belt, even one with low mileage, is not worth the chance of having a belt break and damaging the engine.

Good luck.

What is the recommended milage for a timing belt change on a 2004 Audi A6?


Hi

Audi recently increased the service interval on these belts from 60,000 to 80,000 miles. You cannot do a timing belt inspection - you must replace it at the specified interval due to the fact that a belt may look good but can still fail due to undetectable stressors in the belt itself when it reaches this mileage.

You do not say which engine variant you have in your car but 80,000 is now the general belt interval that is specified.

Hope this helps.

1999 Tercel. Timing belt interval change - calendar limit?


Assume that an average driver does between 10-15K per year. If recommendation is 90K, then average change interval in years should be seven to eight years. Driving is not the only thing that causes the belt to fail...as with any rubber item, the rubber hardens over time (dry rot) and will begin to crack.
This can often be seen on old tires that have hard rubber compounds (such as perelli) cracks appear in sidewalls about an inch from wheel. Your belt is not a tire, but the rubber reacts the same way!
Some people say you can leave the timing belt on for up to 140-150K. I would never do this on anything I owned and would therefore not recommend anyone else do it. (even though it's expensive, it's less than a new engine}

Timing belt replacement


The timing belt on this car should done based on which ever comes first recommended mileage or time basis. If this car has the 2.5 litter Engine I would recommend changing it ASAP. The 2.5L engine is What is referred to as an interference engine which means that if the timing belt breaks the pistons will slap the valves rendering the engine useless. Keep in mind a timing belt is made only of rubber and nylon cord it is not uncommon for them to fail before the recommended service intervel
