Timing belt
For proper functioning of the engine and its emission control systems, the timing belt and belt tensioner must be replaced every 105,000 miles (168,000 km) or at 120,000 miles (193,000 km) for the 2.5T engine on AWD models. Engine damage will occur if the belt fails.

The car hasnt died yet? thats lucky

"engine damage" is a euphemism for, the camshaft will stop as soon as the belt breaks, jamming at least one valve open, the valve head will smash through the piston crown on the next piston upstroke, and large fragments of hardened steel will rattle around in the engine chewing up everything they meet untill the engine seizes
time taken ~3 seconds.

probably a good time replace it, its due to fail now even if the 105K is a conservative fail safe number

Timing belt hydrolic


Your belt will need to be changed again at roughly 150000 miles.Whenever replacing components that relate to timing you should do them all at the same time. it is a difficult and time consuming job to get to the timing gear so for the sake of just changing the hydraulic tensioner and paying to get the belt changed again within a short period of time. its smarter to get it all done at once, and not pay someone to do the job twice. if you do it all now, you can wait another 60000 miles to get it done rather than doing just the hydraulic and then having to do it all again in only 20000 miles.Hope that helps.

When should you change cam belt on volvo s60


Well, most belt companies and aftermarket folks recommend 60,000 to 80,000 miles on a timing belt. You have an interference engine which means if the belt breaks while the engine is running it could damage the valves and pistons. So I would recommend doing it soon.

Need how to set timing belt on kia optima


I had 2006 kia optima 2.4 liter LX, I drove 150000 miles plus, it was over 100,000 miles I changed timing belt, and AC belt, alternator belt is still ok, but it was my fault, I did not change crank shaft balance belt, it next to timing belt, this very important, timing belt and crank shaft balance belt must change same time, you set all mark the same positions, you can see all clear marked
if you had OBD2 scanner is helpful to read all faulty codes if you do it your self repair
if you have any problems about KIA optima, please post on any websites, to share some ideas to other KIA optima owners, like me, I change oil every 2500 miles to make my optima runs smoother
automatic transmission fluid change every year if you put high mileage on your car, optima had hard time to find it own part some time, radiator hoses are still good condition and had hard time to find in any auto part stores in my home town, good luck and thanks for sharing.

Replace timing belt on Volvo S60


There is no room for error...... Zero clearance. If off one tooth it can and will bend valves. if you are one that just feels the need to get alittle dirty or just can't pay for the service, then get out your Haynes out and turn to .....Tune up, and look at replacing timming belt. Get a cam gear tool that locks them into place so as that they will not move when u have them lined up. make sure they are lined up with marks as said in book. then make sure crank as well as all marks are lined up acordingly. make sure belt marks are lined up with everything. i would reccomend using a volvo belt though cause it will have all the marks on it.However other company's make good quality belts also at a fraction of the price. So it is really up to you.
Good thing when doing timming belt is to also change out your timming belt tensioner. YES do this it will save you a engine in the long run. it is a moving part that will go bad, it will freeze up and snap timming belt. rip out teeth in thebelt and bend valves. So as a gen rule...When you change timming belt, Change belt tensioner at same time since you cant just change tensioner without changing or getting timming belt off. Remember to use your HAYNES. It is your friend and will save you money in the long run. Good luck... Hope this helps you.
