When do i replace the timing belt on my seat inca van 2004


Those belts are usually supposed to be changed every 60,000 miles. Behind the timing belt cover is your water pump. They can make noise when going out, but usually a timing belt makes no noise, just breaks. If you ever have to change the water pump, it is always suggested to change the timing belt as well. VS. If your timing belt gets stretched, it will make a bit of a noise, but your car will start running poorly at the same time. Hope I was helpful

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

My Mitsubishi Endeavor (2005) has run 60000 miles. I am going to change Timing Belt. Is Water Pump actuated by the Timing Belt ? So does it make sense to change the Water Pump at the same time? Thanks in...


Yes indeed, the water pump is driven by the timing belt on this vehicle and you would be well advised to change it and the idlers while you are at it. You can get timing belt kits for this vehicle that include the belt, 2 idlers and the water pump. In the UK, the kit is priced at about £70

Hi, i have a 2003 toyota camry v6. everyone is saying the the bearings will need to be changed if i am going to change the timing belt. is this true thanks


If you change the timing belt it is reccomended to also change the tensioner and idler pulleys as well, depending on the mileage. You can change just the belt but it is a little risky, considering you can't actively see what's going on in there. If your timing belt slips on that engine, There's a good chance of doing major damage.

I have a ACURA 3.5 RL with only 138000 KM and wondering if I should replaced the timing belt and water pump


If you know that the timing belt has not been changed at the regular interval or ever been changed, then YES. Also change the water pump and timing belt tensioners.
Its normal to change every 80,000 - 100,000 km

1999 Tercel. Timing belt/water pump interval change?


Hello tinaromano1: The factory specification are to replace the belt every 90,000 miles in severe service. I would recommend to replace at 90,000 no matter what the service would be. Keep in mind should the belt break there is always a chance engine damage may occur. Should you need further help just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

Do I change water pump when having timing belt changed


I would go to auto zone and get a diagram and the timing belt and do it yourself and the water pump (no it does not have to be changed everytime the timing belt is changed but if the car has over 60,000miles then it is best to change them both) it is not that hard especially if the car is not out of time just make sure you disconnect the negative side of the battery

Timing chain


Timing chain does not need to be replaced like a timing belt. It will only need to be replaced if it starts making noise or causing problems
