The belt should be changed at 75,000 miles regardless what the makers say,they dont pay the BIG bill when it breaks.if it does break you are looking at a new engine.......if it goes at speed.

2004 Ford Focus ZX5 - car skips beats/rhythm while idling. Random w/ no set pattern.


can be a few ideas: check plug wires, misfiring, check the plug, if you dont have plugs, than check the [ where the plug should be]
it could be the timing belt slipping, in the 1970 we had timing chains that would last for every, but some one got idea is to put a belt in so at 60-70 thousand miles you need to replace timing belt.

I am unable to replace my timing belt on my 2001 PT Cruiser I have 120,000 miles on my car.....Can it make it to 122,000??? I am trying to get the money together as we speak........Do you know???


some people dont bother to change the belt at all(NOT RECCOMMENDED) so, as long as you dont redline it in every gear,it could go on for a lot longer(i hope...)
feedback??

Im told my car is out of timimng,but I dont know why,what could it be? It jumps and jerks when I get to 45mph and higher and it wont get any speed and jerks into gear.


Timing belt is due for replacement at 85,000 miles.

I saw folks delay the job up to 110,000 miles. (they are pushing there luck)

Without replacing the timing belt,the timing belt teeth can jump on the CAMSHAFTS.


What's your car's odometer reading now?


A timing belt and water job should be down at the same time.


This is not a DO IT YOUR kind of job.


I recommend you to stop driving the car and shop for a good local shop to inspect and replace the timing set and water pump.

'97 Chevy Blazer LS. 77 K miles. At what mileage is the suggested timing belt change for these models or is it change them when they break?


Chevy blazers dont have timing belts they have chains. The chains get noisey on some engines that are run hard or the oil changes are missed. Sometimes these engines live their whole life if not run too hard without changing the chain. Noise lower gas mileage uneven idel hesate to accerate. These are all things that happen over 100 thou miles. Many go way farther with no problems

I'm about to purchase a 2002 Nissan Frontier with 88,000 miles on it from a dealership.  I'd like to know when the timing belt should be replaced, as I might have them do it as "part of the deal".


DONT BUY IT. There is more than the timing belt that is wrong with it. Some dealers do that **** just to make a quick buck. I dont like it. Sorry to inform you, but if they dont know how to change a timing belt, or know when it needs to be changed, they dont need to be in business. Sorry to be so blunt but I try to be as honest as I can.
