No need to inspect, if it has 125k miles or more, replace it and the water pump. If you really want to look at it, take off your valve cover and it will be the only rubber belt you see under there on the driver's side. Scratch it with your finger nail, if it seems dry rotted, cracked, glazed or the teeth are fuzzy, it needs changed. always do the water pump at the same time because they usually fail close together.

General Information

Interference Engines
Engines, chain- or belt-driven, can be classified as either free-running or interference, depending on what would happen if the piston-to-valve timing is disrupted. A free-running engine is designed with enough clearance between the pistons and valves to allow the crankshaft to rotate (pistons still moving) while the camshaft stays in one position (several valves fully open). If this condition occurs normally, no internal engine damage will result. In an interference engine, there is not enough clearance between the pistons and valves to allow the crankshaft to turn without the camshaft being in time.
An interference engine can suffer extensive internal damage if a timing belt fails. The piston design does not allow clearance for the valve to be fully open and the piston to be at the top of its stroke. If the belt fails, the piston will collide with the valve and will bend or break the valve, damage the piston, and/or bend a connecting rod. When this type of failure occurs, the engine will need to be replaced or disassembled for further internal inspection; either choice costing many times that of replacing the timing belt.


Inspection


NOTE For manufacturer-s recommended service interval, refer to the maintenance interval chart located in this manual.
The average replacement interval for a timing belt is approximately 60,000 miles (96,000 km). If, however, the timing belt is inspected earlier or more frequently than suggested, and shows signs of wear or defects, the belt should be replaced at that time.

WARNING Never allow antifreeze, oil or solvents to come into with a timing belt. If this occurs immediately wash the solution from the timing belt. Also, never excessive bend or twist the timing belt; this can damage the belt so that its lifetime is severely shortened.

Fig. Never bend or twist a timing belt excessively, and do not allow solvents, antifreeze, gasoline, acid or oil to come into contact with the belt
Inspect both sides of the timing belt. Replace the belt with a new one if any of the following conditions exist:


Hardening of the rubber-back side is glossy without resilience and leaves no indentation when pressed with a fingernail Cracks on the rubber backing Cracks or peeling of the canvas backing Cracks on rib root Cracks on belt sides Missing teeth or chunks of teeth Abnormal wear of belt sides-the sides are normal if they are sharp, as if cut by a knife.

Fig. Clean the timing belt before inspection so that imperfections or defects are easier to recognize

Fig. Inspect the timing belt for damage, such as a broken or missing tooth, which may be due to a damaged pulley

Fig. Back surface worn or cracked from a possible overheated engine or interference with the belt cover

0996b43f802095a9.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Worn teeth from excessive belt tension, camshaft or distributor not turning properly, or fluid leaking on the belt

If none of these conditions exist, the belt does not need replacement unless it is at the recommended interval. The belt MUST be replaced at the recommended interval.

WARNING On interference engines, it is very important to replace the timing belt at the recommended intervals, otherwise expensive engine damage will likely result if the belt fails.

Easiest way to check timing belt


If you simply want to check the timing belt condition, then remove the plastic cover and visually inspect it. If you have the 5 sfe engine, the timing belt cover is a 2 piece assembly, upper and lower. if you have the 7 afe or 4 afe engine the timing cover is 3 pieces and to inspect the top of the timing belt you must remove the 4 nuts holding the valve cover down and the 2 bolts holding the wire loom. remove the whole valve cover. to inspect timing belt condition.

When does the belt and timing belt need changed? How many miles for each?


On the 1.6L engine:
The timing belt should be replaced at 90,000 miles.
The drive belt should be inspected for wear or cracking every 30,000 miles. However I recommend that the drive belt be visually inspected every time the oil change is performed. It only takes a second to look at it and it keeps you aware of the belts condition on a more regular basis. This is important because there are certain conditions that can accelerate a belt's deterioration.

At what interval should the cambelt be changed on a 2004 Ford Fusion 1.4 TDCi?


It varies on different vehicles; however, if it has more than 60,000 miles on it, it should be inspected. There is usually an inspection plate that allows you to look at the belt. You are looking for cracks on the inside of the belt or outside. If anything like that exist, you need to have it replaced, and also the water pump needs to be replaced at the same time since they can cause premature failure of the timing belt. If there isn't an inspection plate for the belt, you will need to take off the cover to get a closer look.

G35 Belts -


Sir, belts do generally last a lot longer, but many people recommend to replace them sooner as a precautionary measure. You can inspect your belts except timing belt by using a good light and inspecting them closely for cracks or other damage. A broken belt can be costly if it breaks, especially in engines that do not have no valve piston clearance when out of time.
