Most cars call for replacement of the belt at 60,000 miles. On many cars, if the belt breaks, it can cause extensive (and expensive) damage to the engine, so you want to get this done soon.

When to change timing belt in 2006 galant


Timing Belt Replace ment Intervals for 2006 Mitsubishi Galant are as follows:

2.4L 4Cylinder engine: Every 60,000 miles

3.8L V-6 Engine: Every 60,000 miles

Both of these engines are "Interference Engines" which means that if the timing belt breaks, severe engine damage is likely to result.

I personally recommend replacement of the timing belt idler and tensioner pullies as well as the water pump because failure of these components will cause a failure of the timing belt.

How often do timing belt need to be changed


Some belts require replacement at 60,000 miles, while others could be at 40,000 or more than 60,000. It is generally a good idea to replace the timing belt at least 60,000 miles.

Timing belt in a 2005 hyundai replacement


You should find another dealer. Hyundai recommends replacing the belt every 60,000 miles and this dealer knows this. No reason at all to replace it at 42,093 miles. Remember that this is an interference engine so if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. Do not neglect this service at 60,000 miles.

Unknown millage on timing belt 152000


The interval for replacement is 60,000 miles on that model.
If you do not know the last time it was changed, it would be a good idea to do it so you do not risk getting stranded.

The engine is NOT an interference engine, so the engine will not be damaged if the belt breaks; you will just need a tow truck to get it somewhere to install a new belt.

What is the recommended schedule for replacing the timing belt


Find out if you have a rubber belt or a chain belt. Rubber every 50.000 miles, chain 100.000 miles.
