It has a timing belt. Recommended to be replace every 105,000 miles, timing belt also run's your water pump good idea to also replace, your engine is also an INTERFERENCE ENGINE which will damage your cylinder head valve's if timing belt goes bad. Hope this was very helpful.

All Honda Civic engines use a timing belt, and they should be replaced every 60,000 miles.

Getting code p1361 on my 99 civic. what is the problem and how do you fix it?


Code P1361 = Intermittent Interruption In TDC 1 Sensor Circuit

Turns out Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor was bad. Yours is too.

This sensor in located behind the timing chain cover on my 2001 civic. You have to take the cover off to get to it. Honda dealer wanted $360 in labor to change the sensor. Because it was in the same the location Honda would have changed my timing chain for no extra labor charge. So I went to the Honda dealer and got the sensor ($56) and went to the auto parts store and got a timing chain, water pump, and new belts. Local mechanic changed all these parts for $160 in labor (others wanted $230). $130 for the sensor and timing chain and $30 more for the pump. I probably could have hacked that timing chain cover off myself but that is what thought would happen. A hack job. And it was time for a new chain anyway. 92 plus degrees outside and the civic is running fine.

Good luck (remember rated this post).

Timing chain maintenance


It's actaully a timing belt, not a chain. But the mileage recommendation i believe is 60,000 or 90,000 miles.
