Dealer recommends new timing belt

Our 2001 Honda Civic has 50,000 miles on it. Our dealer keeps recommending that we have the timing belt replaced as general maintenance for $$$.

Are they right? I read it should be replaced at 105,000 or so, but know it's 7 years plus old.

Do I need to replace timing belt on a 2001 Honda Accord that has 40,000 miles?

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.

I have a 2005 Honda Civic EX Special Edition with 88K. At how many miles should I replace the timing belt?

i recommend replacing a timing belt at 90.000 miles your dealer is most likely to tell you the same thing. you really do not want it to break while driving it.depending on the motor you have,if it has O clearance on the valves. i'm not sure what size your motor is. most honda cars have O clearance on the cam shaft. that means in laymans terms, if the belt breaks while the vehicles moving,the valves will be crushed. that's a whole lot of money. if you bought your car new your handbook should tell you at what mileage what certain services your due for. i know there are 90.000 mile services and also 100.000 mile service. suggest you check with your local honda dealer just to be sure. thank you for choosing we're here to assist you anyway we can!

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.

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.

It is not an eays job. I would have it done by a tecknician so you have a warranty. The honda dealer is your best bet because you will oem parts and the job will be done right . then you are good for another 90,000 miles. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer.
