It looks like you have a timing belt and most are to be changed @ 90,000 miles, Do it now, also have the water pump changed, there right there, and it is normal maintance, I noticed that engine is hard to find parts for, most applications are for the 2.0 L. and the 2.3 L.

I say the dealer you purchased it from probably knows it is near time to replace if not already over. I recommend you take advantage of the free replacement. It is much better to change a little early than to let it go until it breaks. Some engines can be severely damaged if the belt breaks while they are running. At the very least, when it breaks the engine is dead until it is fixed.

Thanks for using FixYa.

99 Honda Accord 4 cyl manual 54000 kms, serviced


USA answers, always.
and 60k is most cars. (most cars they like to die at 100k miles)
and is not possible by any human to answer EOL , end of life.

that depends if its Honda belt, or Gates or some china carp
sold off fleabay.
and air temp, where you live, Climate, Pheonix. or Canada?

ok it seems this belt is the first ever to be changed out. Gates is the best.
my online links shows 5 engine options, 1.6L to 3L.
that begs the question #1 is my engine interference type,
if you go to the GATES (tm) ecatalog, you can see if it is or not. using engine type. option as your selection.
i pulled up the maintenance tab and it states, 105K miles.
but may vary by engine, and for sure if belt is 2nd time.
look up this info carefully.
and can vary with cars driven extensively in stop and go traffic.
hot , and long engine hours, but low miles.
i see no chain, on the 5 engines, alldata shows 5 belts.

105,000 miles best case USA.
168,000 meters 168K meters

urgent.? 2.3L is interference 105/60k (60k miles severe usage)
3L?
i look at Gates and bingo Interference.
so URGENT.
is it urgent.
easy answer?, if it looks bad, it is. get it out of there.
cracks, fraying, distortions of any kind.
only reality counts. (yours)

navigates. is the ecat.

if really paranoid, get a real Honda belt... 105k miles is magic.

When should a 2002 subaru legacy timing belt be changed?


That belt should be inspected every 30000 miles and replaced at 105000 miles.

Look here for the entire 2002 Subaru legacy maintenance schedule :

Hi .. 2004 Honda Civic EX at 61000k miles .. going to purchase , when is the timing belt to be changed ? pls advice.. asap . so as to finalise the deal .. also 60 k maintaince is not done.. so that...


Timing belt need to be done around 100K miles. You might want to check the brakes. Fronts struts are known to leak on this model car. Trans fluid will need to be replace. Air filter and pollen filter might need to be replace if dirty. I worked on Honda for 8 years and this model doesn't have too many major problem, but I can't say that for the one you're buying.
good luck

How to know if timing belt on volvo t6 needs to be replaced if dealer stamps and bills don't show it. The 105 page was stamped.


The timing belt should have been replaced at the 105K service. Someone should look at the timing belt to determine the condition. However, if you have any doubts, you should replace it to be on the safe side. Also replace the mechanical tensioner.

According to scheduled maintenance, your car should be due for a timing belt at 105,000 miles. Most dealers usually charge about $500. Unless you are having running problems, your car should hold out for another month.
