I am considering purchasing this car. The owner says the timing belt was changed at 114,000 miles. I don't know if this was the first time it was changed, but if it was, what are the chances that waiting that long to put in a new timing belt would damage the engine or cause excess wear?

Hi there,

If the belt was changed you have no problems, there will be no issue with extending the life of the belt, but if it fails that is when you get the problems, you will do serious damage to the engine, that is why they have a life and the belts should be changed as this is well with in the expected fail time of the belt,
