How to change timing belt for honda pilot


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 !

On the 2004 Element. Do you have to change the timing belt at a particular time ; or does it have a Chain?


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.

My honda is allmost 60k miles what kind of service i need


I believe that 60K service will normally include:

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.

Just bought a 2004 Honda Civic VTech with 37000 miles. When does Honda recommend changing the timing 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!

Timing Belt replacement- two recomendations by mazda manual


they are good for well over 100k. If your engine is freewheeling (that is - if belt does break, no valve will hit the psiton), I would just keep driving it until it breaks or never does.
I am driving my 93 Villager until it breaks. over 150k right now, freewheeling engine.

As for cost, about $400 is my guess.

Ask your dealer service dept if it's freewheeling. check your owner manual too.

1995 Honda civic - Replaced a bad water pump, and the timing belt broke. replaced the timing belt, but the car don't start. Won't tun over. Help


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.
