Timmimg belts on honda vehicles are very in depth and on some models equiped with and balance shaft system require special tools ! It can be done at home but i highly recommend you purchase a repair manual that will give you a step by step instruction and i also recommend you change your water pump when doing this as well while everything is off the front of the engine ! Please note that all the engine Compoments must be timmed properly and in the right sequence or else engine damage can occur !
Honda element has a Timing Chain, and Honda doesn't even recommending looking at it till something like 110,000 or 120,000 miles.
However, it is this an "interference" engine, meaning that if the chain or belt fails it could destroy the valve train and even the pistons. Because it is an interference engine. I plan to change my chain at 100K, since I expect the car to go at least 200K but don't expect the chain to last that long. Normally cars has Tune ups scheduled at 30K, 60, and 90K. As the rule of the thumb at 90K Tune up mechanic shops recommend timing Belt or Chain to be replaced. We can go for longer taking the risk.
1. Engine oil and filter 2. Transmission oil and maybe filter 3. Valve train adjustment 4. New belts for alternator, power steering, air conditioning
I would have the brake fluid changed every two years to remove moisture and prevent rust. I also change the power steering fluid.
Be sure that genuine Honda transmission fluid is used or else the shifting may become wierd. Don't let the shop use ordinary Dexron with an additive like Lubeguard because it won't be the same.
Some shops may also recommend a new timing belt at 60K, although Hondas now require the change only at 90K. If the water pump is driven by this belt, get it replaced as well because when a pump siezes it will snap the belt.
Do you mean inside the engine(timing belt)?Or do you mean tensioner belt which is attached to a/c,alternator,fan etc.?If you mean tensioner belt(which seems more like what you are asking),then it just needs to be inspected periodically.If there are frays,knicks,or cracks,then it needs changing.They may have a requirement,I am not sure,but when companies have set scheduling like 30K,or 50K mile checkup,it is more likely to require inspection to determine replacement needs,rather than a definitely change at such and such miles.Good luck!
taking it that you had the timing belt changed
the job may not have been done correctly and the belt is not tensioning properly resulting ion a harmonic fluctuation that is your problem
if the job was done by a local mechanic take it to an accredited Honda service center for a diagnosis and if it turns out to be the fault discuss warranty rework or have the job done professionally and have the mechanic pick up the account
Not at all unusual for the timing belt to break and cause major mechanical problems inside of your engine. A failed timing belt can totally destroy your engine due to the extremely close clearences. That's why the strongly recommend a preventative replacement of the timing belts in all Hondas and Toyotas at specified mileage frequencies between 70,000 and 120,000 miles. Change the timing belt before it destroys the engine. You may now be at a point where only the Honda Dealer or authorized garage may be able to help diagnose the problem.
My TL '99 has 190,000 mile very happy with this car on 100,000miles timing belt was change for $250+parts $130 in local car shop its take like 2-3 hours, when i seen that old belt it was like a new one mechanic sad you dont really need to change it, but i like this car also i changed water pump, this is what they usually changing with belt, this is real nice car, no wonder made by honda
