Four cylinder automatic 207000 miles.

My timing belt is due to be replaced soon. However, I recently had to have my transmission rebuilt. Is the timing belt part of the transmission? Thank you.

I would like to replace the timing belt on my car at 90,000. What other parts do I need to replace and what should I look out for?

At 90,000 miles you should replace the following:

Air cleaner

Automatic or manual trans-axle fluid

Spark plugs

Rotate tires

Adjust drive belts

Also, make sure the timing belt tension er is working properly while replacing the timing belt.

If a timing belt breaks on a Honda Accord, does it destroy the motor by bending the valves?

Four cylinder OHC is it a interference engine or a non interference engine? I changed the broken timing belt and it idles different but runs well. Is that because a valve could be jeopardized? Can there be valve damage to one valve and still run? Should I assume because it runs there was no valve damage or are there degrees of valve damage? Thanks so much.

Yes, this is an interference engine but it does not necessarily mean the valve would be damaged. Usually when valves are damaged, it would be more than one.

Check the valve clearances, engine compression and ignition timing.

Turn it counterclockwise- as for the timing marks put the engine number one piston on its compression stroke then set the timing marks on the cam and crank sprockets.

Hello,

Here is a link to a page that shows both four and six cylinder camshaft and timing belt marks so you can get the job done. Make sure to do the water pump as well since it is driven by the belt and if the pump fails so does the timing belt.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken

How difficult is it to change the timing belt on a 1995-1996 Honda Accord? What all does it take? Do you have to have any special equipment? Please give me some details. Can I do it myself or is a mechanic going to need to do it? I am an experienced shade tree mechanic but never did this on foreign car.

It takes some knowing to do.
If you are not sure of your self on how to do a timing belt Honda is the wrong car to start with.
May I suggest you get a manual and read all about it before you attempt doing it,
until you are 100% sure of your self that you can handle the job do not do it.
I can get you the timing marks if you still need them let me know
PS. If you are to do it change the water pump too or have it done.

I recommend changing the tensioner as well as the water pump. The one important piece of advise that I can offer is to make sure the alignments for the cam and crank are right on. But after you put the new belt on they still must be right on. I think the hardest part that people have to worry about is the bolt on the crankshaft in both removing and installing. It is put on very tightly and must be reinstalled the same. Honda makes a special wrench to assist with that removal. I made my own and would not attempt to take off or replace the bolt on the crankshaft with out it, but it can be done.

If you decided to take it to the mechanic, please stay away from Purrfect Auto Repair Shop unless you really know them. I took my car recently to that shop and now I have problem with this high pitch noise that sounded like coming from the timing belt. The mechanic said it is because the timing belt cover was bad/warped thus the noise comes out of it. FYI only. Thanks.
