Serpentine belt should be replaced when it shows signs of cracking or fraying. Most last over three years. If the belt fails, the engine will continue to run but the steering will have no power assist, the alternator will not charge and it will overheat because the water pump is no longer turning. Unless you totally ignore that and drive it 'till the engine fails, though inconvenient, it's not tragic. Whenever you buy a used vehicle it's wise to replace the belt and save the old one (along with necessary tools to do replacement, stored in the vehicle) That way, you can do an emergency change on the road if necessary. (applies to hoses as well). It gives you the benefit of knowing with confidence how old those parts are and also that if one does fail, you will not be stranded.

Mitsubishi eclipse convertiable timing belt change?


Typical timing belt intervals are every 60k miles. It's a very involved service to do the whole job - timing belt, timing belt tensioner, serpentine or accessory belts, water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, all fluids, all filters, brake and suspension inspection, and tire rotation. On many cars it's recommended to change the oxygen sensors as well. Quite a bit of this can be done when you want, but the first five items are critical and should all be done. And regardless of whether your manufacturer says the coolant is "lifetime", replace it - don't reuse coolant. It's cheap and it's good practice to use new coolant.
