The 3.2 L. is an interference motor witch means if the belt breaks under operating conditions ,It is very likely there WILL be valve damage ! In shorts,The crankshaft has more duration than the valve train ,So when the belt fails the valves stop moving while the crank is still in motion with a piston making contact with any open valves.When this happens it bends the valve so that it can not seat or seal to hold compression in the cylinder or cylinders affected

The service interval is 105,000 miles. At that time you should also plan on replacing the water pump and timing belt rollers if they show any sign of wear. It's also a good time to carefully inspect the cam and crank seals, if they're leaking, it's a good time to do them as well.

    According to Gates, and I think they have a pretty good product and comprehensive guide, the timing belt should be done at 105,000 miles. Here's a screen shot of the page:

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.
Unlimited,.....................................
google that , DOHC went boom.

When do I have to change a timing belt on a 2002 Acura TL with 59K miles?


Timing chain? When it goes bad. If you're reffering to the belt on the front of the motor, you can wait till it goes bad or change it whenever you want. I would reccomend every 20 to 25 thousand miles.

Should I replace the timing belt & water pump at the 90k for my 2005 acura tl


Yes it would be a very good idea to change them all at once. You can't go wrong there because most timing belts and water pumps go out around 90-100,000 miles. Go for it I would.

Good Luck!
