90k miles, recommended to replace also the water pump, idler and tensioner pulleys. Shop costs (3hr labor) $450-$750 depending on their labor rate and parts price.

Nancy, the Honda recommendations are to change belt 100,000 Km/ 60000 miles or every 7 years which ever occurs first. So if timing belt has not been changed, YES change it. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

1995 accord timing belt schedule

If the timing belt has been replaced recently, a mechanic can inspect it taking the cover off, and tell you, that won't cost big money.

If it has been replaced 50K miles ago it wont be possible to know.

If the car has 114K miles, I suggest taking it to a mechanic and replacing the timing belt.

I have just changed the timing belt on a 2001 Acura TL and now the engine turns over but will not start.

did you follow all steps in the FSM on this? if not, why not.
id never crank any interference motor over, with out checking
the timing 3 times, or 4th after sober, or after Cell phone died.
stop , take a break, or a nap , then check timing one more time.
and sparks out, roll crank by hand, no hit? and the 4 cycles.
of OTTO cycle, are looking good, per valve action viewed.
Intake, compr. fire stroke, exhaust, repeat? good a actions?
This last step is covered in all ASE classes on topic.
never just crank it. DOHC engines, or any that are known or suspected as being interference. (i do a leak down test, im so paranoid ($3000 new engines...make me that way)
its your motor. so....

what engine, there are many? world wide.......
Acura DATA?
Engine Interference Replace belt?
1.6(d16a1) Yes N/A
1.7(b17) Yes 90,000
1.8 (b18 all) Yes 90,000
2.2 & 2.3 (f22 and f23) Yes 90,000
2.5 (5 cyl.) (g25)Yes 90,000
2.5 (V-6) (c25)Yes 90,000
2.7 (C27) Yes 90,000
3.0 (J30) Yes 90,000
3.2 (C32) Yes 90,000
3.2 (SLX) (J32)No 90,000
3.5 (C35) Yes 90,000
3.5 (SLX) (J35)No 90,000

end data:

Let guess what happened? and what the right path is.
Interference motors.. (no context to your post so.....)
1: engine died.? did it? a KEY POINT THAT !
2: if find my belt , Tbelt all funky.
3: i put in a new one. (i time it 3 times, sober, no cell phones on ear)
4: i roll engine, by hand ,seems ok. ? yes.
5: i do a leak down test, on each cylinder at it's TDC fire points.
it passes, so i crank it.
it fails, oops, valves bent (stop , dont pass go or collect $200)

not doing this, in the correct order invites total destruction.
google that , DOHC went boom.

I have 1995 Honda accord LX 4 door, it has 135,000 miles. Recently when driving, it is stopping all of a sudden without any warning on the road. It is very scary when car looses it power and stops...

If you haven't had the timing belt done, there is a good chance that the timing belt broke. It is due to be replaced every 90,000 miles along with the water pump. You have an interference engine which means that if the timing belt fails, the valves will hit pistons likely cause damage to the engine. Best case, you get away with having the timing belt replaced. Worst case, you will need an engine.

90,000 engine service what do u change

In a word...everything!

First and foremost replace the timing belt, all of the Galant engines are interference engines meaning that if it fails you will sustain severe damage to the engine. If your at 90K miles your over by about 20K. Since your going to be in there go ahead and replace the water pump.

Also needing replacing, Serpentine belt, Spark plugs, Spark plug wires, anti-freeze, Transaxle fluid, Air filter, Radiator hoses.

If you have a 4 cyl most you can do most of this yourself at very little cost. Don't try the Timing belt unless your an above average do it yourself mechanic.

If its a 6 cyl I'd just have a shop do it all at the same time, the plugs and wires are a pain.

When accerating as I'm going up a hill, I hear a rattling noise and whisteling. I've had the car for two months and it just started today. I have a 1996 Honda Accord LX, I bought the car used.

If the car is well past 90,000 miles (144,000 km) you may have a worn timing belt. Clattering sounds are a warning sound that the timing belt is not controlling piston and valve movement correctly. Carbon build-up may be contributing to your symptoms, but the timing belt needs replacing urgently if it has not been replaced already in the lifetime of the car. Timing belt breakage results in serious damage to the engine. Repairing the damage usually means an expensive engine overhaul or engine replacement.

When should a get the timing belt replaced?

It is critical that you replace the cam belt at 90,000 miles on the 4 cylinder and V6. Both engines are interference engines and as such if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. The water pump is also driven by the cam belt so to save labor costs later on have the water pump replaced at the same time you replace the cam belt. Have the cooling system flushed, thermostat replaced, and a fresh supply of a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water installed. You will be good to go for another 90,000 miles.

2001 Toyota camry 2.2 L 4 cyl engine timming belt replacement

The 2001 Camry 2.2 has a timing belt.
Recommended change interval is 90,000 miles.
There is no good reason for putting the replacement off, as the belt may be stretched slightly when it nears the rec replace interval, and your mileage may suffer because the engine is not in proper "time".
If the belt jumps time or breaks, it will NOT damage the valves.
