When should I change the timing belt on a 2004-Honda Accord? I currently have 71,250. Miles on my car and the Tires Plus company is insisting I replace it now or my engine will be damaged.

Check your owners manual. I think the recommendation is to change it at 90,000 miles. I didn't change my until 115,000 miles on my '96 Accord. The problem is, if it breaks before you change it, it will cause a lot of damage that will cost more than just changing the belt. I'm coming up on 200,000 miles and will be changing the belt again. I'm going to try doing it myself this time. Good Luck.

Its an interference engine-if in doubt change it now dont' wait till you get up to 90K.
