I am pretty sure you are asking about the serpentine belt.The timing belt is inside the engine and should not need replacing unless the engine is running REAL bad.If you are talking about the serpentine belt,a rubber belt which the engine drives and it powers the alternator,a/c,power steer,power brakes.There may be a mileage requirement for changing,but it is more about inspecting it and deciding.If there are many small cracks,or a few big cracks,or some fraying around the edges,then it needs replacing.Or if it's stretched a little too.A sign of that would be slow overheat,a/c may seem a little less cold than normal.First you need to make a diagram of how the belt is routed.To change it,you have to pull the tensioner away from the belt side to loosen the belt,then slip the belt out of the grooves and off.The tensioner is round and looks like it isn't connect to anything but a wall or have a purpose but it is spring loaded.When you put the belt back on,start from the engine,pulling up slightly so it doesn't fall off,and work both sides until you're back at the tensioner.Push the tensioner away from the belt wrapped side and slip it over the edge.
Good luck! Greg

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

When do you change the timing belt? Mine has 104,000 miles


It depends on which type of motor you have; if it is an interference motor, it should be changed every 60,000 to 70,000 miles. You can write down your vin # and call the dealer to find out. You may also consider changing the water pump if it's driven by the timing belt, as the belt has to be removed for the changeover.

Do you have to change the water pump when changing the timing belt/timing?


You don't have too, but not bad idea, the timing belt drives the water pump, if you just replace timing belt, and not water pump, water pump could go out and mess up the timing belt, now it has to be done all over again, timing belt, water pump and labor.

I have 151,000 miles on my 2002 4cyl Camry and have not changed the timeing or the sepeitine belt: Is it time to have it done?


Hi:
It is overdue time to change your timing belt and waterpump, as you are on borrowed time on the timing belt. The waterpump and tensioner should be changed along with the timing belt, as they can ruin a new timing belt if they fail. Your serpentine belt should be inspected and replaced if needed too.

What else needs to be changed when doing a timing belt on a 1999 honda accord? and about how much should it cost?


Technically, nothing else needs to be changed when replacing a timing belt, however it is recommended or suggested to replace the timing belt tensioner and water pump while doing the belt. These items are only accessable when doing a timing belt. The cost should be under $100.00

Reset timing


timing shift on engine with timing belt are usually caused by worn timing belt teeth and resetting it is usually done by changing the belt. on new car there is no more timing adjustment the computer does all the required change. it is a must that the white mark on the new belt are aligned with each of the gear mark.

Changing a timing belt on a 2001 Honda Accord


All of your fan belts needs to be taken off because the timing belt is located beneath the crankshaft pulley. There is a possibility that you may need to lift the motor off its motor mounts to gain access to the timing belt. Remember, the timing belt can't be seen from the outside.
