    Thanks your answer helped. I have been going to the local Honda Dealer and they seem to be less and less helpful.

No, most manufacturer replacement intervals are from 60,000miles to 105,000 miles for timing belts.

It would be better to either buy a workshop manual, join a Honda forum or contact a dealer for the exact milleage for belt change.

    If you Do Not replace the timing belt on time and it strips a tooth or 2 , or if it snaps, there is a very high probability that it will cause bent valves, which will require very expensive additional repair!

    Please note, 105,000 or 84 months is the exact manufacturer requirement...sooner if you use the vehicle in high performance applications.

Most of the time you can wait until 100,000 miles to replace the timing belt. But there is no way to be sure, and maintenance recommendations vary. It is best to fall on the safe side. If you do not feel that you have the expertise to check the timing belt yourself, it is recommended that you have a professional take a look at it.

Although your milage is very low your belt is do by time.Alot of times i consider the wear of the external belts because the timing belt will wear similar to them and considering the cost of replacing a timing belt as a maitenence compared to a failure I would definitely do it now.

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.

Honda Accord V6 2001


I can see that as being possible. Hondas are usually due for timing belt replacement at 90k though - has this been done on your car? If it has, then it doesn't need to be done again for 90k miles from the mileage it was originally done at. If your car needs this service, it's the big one. A timing belt service usually is the timing belt, the t-belt tensioner, accessory belts, any tensioners for them, water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, and all filters and fluids. That price may be somewhat on the high end, and I think you should comparison shop a few places to see where their pricing comes in, but I can believe that quote (the $920 quote, not the $1600 - that's ridiculous).
