Dealer tells me I need to replace the timing belt now because of the age of my car and not the mileage. Is this true? Should it be changed now instead of at the 100,000 mile mark?
Thanks

HI there,

Thank you for the donation,

Most manufacturers will give a mileage or time frame to replace the timing belt. If your dealer has advised this is now due for your car, I would do it. These engine are interference engines, that is valves will strike pistons if the belt fails, the cost is horrendous to repair these engines, I would change the belt, it's call preventive maintenance.

I have to agree. I'm at around 82,500 miles right now - I plan on doing the timing belt and waterpump on my next yearly visit to the Honda dealer in August. It's preventative maintenance, and unfortunately, it's one of those things you just "don't know" it's going to go.

Nobody in my family has bothered to change their timing belts, and they didn't fail as long as they've owned the car. So, it's a peace-of-mind thing.

Unfortunately I waited too long on one of my vehicles. The price of the repair was so high that it became one of the reasons why I went to school to be an auto technician. I TELL YA MY CHAIN SLIPPED AND BENT THE VALVES. UGLY SITUATION. THE ONLY THING I WOULD PROBABLY DO DIFFERENT THOUGH, IS : IF YOUR CAR IS NOT UNDER WARRANTY, I SUGGEST THAT YOU SHOP AROUND FOR LABOR PRICES, DEALERS ARE VERY EXPENSIVE

My dealer here in NJ said it'd be 600 for just the labor and the new timing belt. More if I wanted to do the water pump.

Local shops near by seem to be around 100 bucks cheaper, for 100 bucks I'd personally rather have Honda do it. The local shops nearby seem to get a kick out of employing 16 year olds to work on peoples' cars.

I recently had some routine maintenance work done on my car - timing belt replacement, replaced seals, getting carbon out of the engine, etc.

Now that I have my car back, it's very squeaky. It squeaks on slow turns, but the most alarming thing is that no matter how fast I'm driving, about every 15-20 seconds, the car does a little squeak and at the exact same time, loses its forward acceleration for a split second. It feels like it slows slightly, and then after the squeak, it picks right back up.

It's most noticeable when I have the car on cruise control, but it's happening without it as well.

Could some of the repair work have caused this problem?

Hi khanssen,

I believe the power steering and AC belt has not been adjusted properly. GEt back to the shop which did the job to have it rectified. Hope the crankpully is correctly torqued.

I can't view any of the images for the timing belt diagrams. I have no problem viewing images from any other website on the internet. Please look into this as this is the only reason I signed up with you to begin with.

My Honda Civic has about 84,000 miles on it. I'm just wondering if I should change the timing belt and have it tuned up? I checked and the cost is around $500. Would that be a reasonable price?
Thank you!

Hi SylviaNgocDang,

Labor time is between 2.5 to 3.5 hours depending on whether oil seals are to be replaced.

Parts cost is about $ 100.

$ 500 inclusive of tuneup and servicing seems reasonable depending on where you are located and local conditions.

Recommended timing belt replacement period is 105 k miles under normal conditions. Under extreme temperature, over 110 degrees F and under -20 degrees F recommended to replace at 60k miles.

Hi again, Thanks for the reply.
I'm currently in San Diego, California. I don't think the weather is that extreme where I have to change the timing belt at 60K miles. My car right now has 84K miles so tuning up is recommended right? I'm thinking on having it done asap since I commute too much for school and work.
About chaning a new timing belt, I should wait till 90K too 100K miles? If so, then the tune up fee wouldn't be that much correct?

Hi SylviaNgocDang,

Tuneup is not that important for vehicles nowadays. The things that you need to check would be the spark plugs and oil replacement.

At 84 k miles it should last you up to 100k without problem but I forgot to mention the time frame is 84 months so I would recommend that you get it replaced at 90 k miles max, to be on the safe side.
