My service engine light comes on about 2 times a yr. iit has been put on the computer at the servives place and it always reads everything is okay . The suv is a 1999 with 105,000 mles I purchased it


The service engine light usually comes on to let you know it is time for oil change, air and fuel filter check and other services. This is a reminder to let you know to do these things. This is usually tripped by the computer when the vehicle reaches a predetermined number of miles driven.

Does the volvo 2000 s40 have a timeing belt or timeing chain?


The 1.9 Liter has a cam belt which MUST be replaced at 105,000 miles. Also replace the water pump which is driven by the cam belt to save labor costs later one. This is an INTERFERENCE engine and as such if the belt breaks you will have serious engine damage. Therefore do not neglect this service.

ON THIS CAR WHEN DOES THE TIMING BELT NEED TO BE CHANGED ?


your timing belt needs to be replaced every 90,000 miles on the older cars they are to be replaced at every 60,000 miles. but if it was me i would do every 60k just because breaking a timing belt can cost you a motor and for your camery that can cost up to 2000 for a rebuilt motor.

How often do i have to change the timing belt?


Each manufacturer has their own recommendation. Honda says 105,000 miles, Domestic say 60-80,000 . Depending on driving conditions, I would recommend 80,000 for anything. Replace the water pump if driven by the belt and the related components too.

For California models recommended at 105,000 miles.Belt needs to be inspected at 60,000 and 90,000, miles and replace at 105,000 miles.
Except California replace at 60,000 miles. Note 1.8L engine is a interference engine, if timing belt goes bad will cause major internal engine damage.

I only have 45K on my 99 Acura TL. I am planning a cross country trip through desert. Should I have timing belt replaced? Car is 11 years old, and manual suggest replacement at 8 years.


i think it could last, factory says every 105,000 miles even though the car is 11 years old it hasn't been driven for all those years, remember on average you put 10-15,000 miles on a car yearly, so your car is missing like 85,000 miles on it which is like the car wasnt being driven for 8 of those years
