Listen i was told the belt should be replaced at 60k it's on page 267 of my 2001 accord owners manual that the timing belt should be replaced at 60,000miles or 100,000km. my subaru outback on the other hand the manual says to replace the timing belt at 105,000 miles

The quote I posted is directly from American honda on ISIS, it's more accurate than a 6 year old book. (it's the website all dealerships use)
If you want to waste money and replace it too early then be my guest.

Default Re: (Evil M0nkey)

i don't see what the problem is here? The Owners manual recommends replacing the timing belt at 60,000 miles. They wouldn't just say that, there's a reason for that because the belts could break and cause damage to your engine which what happened to my subaru just recently. Plus it's not a waste of money ither for myself because i'm not poor

Default 2001 Accord Maintnence schedule

Listen to me.
I understand what your owners manual says. It is not correct.
I work for a dealership, and have done so for the past 5 years. I have never seen a timing belt break on a Honda in less than 105K miles or 7 years. It RARELY ever happens.
The quote I posted is from the website we use that American Honda has posted themselves. It holds the current information. American Honda always advises you to check with ISIS to see if there is any updated information. This applies to your case.
If you don't believe me here is a screen shot of the correct owners manual page in PDF form.


If you still don't believe me here is a screen shot of the page i quoted earlier

yeah, it was me, so... It's a frequently asked question that is easily searchable (if thats even a word Click the image to open in full size. )

does this look like I was giving you a "hard time"?

It wasn't that you didn't look hard enough, you didn't look period. I have it in the FAQ because it's a Frequently Asked Question. And if you would have done any searching you would have noticed that by the amount of hits you got back from a search.

And... so just because you are new you dont have to follow the same rules everyone else has too?? no, there are site rules (ToS) and then there are each individual forum rules. It doesn't matter if you are new or have been a member for 4+ years, everyone has to follow the rules.

I understand that new people sign up to the forum sometimes because they have a problem and need help. Thats fine, but understand that this forum isn't new and most questions have already been asked and answered more than once. So the members aren't going to want to keep seeing the same sets of questions get asked over and over on a weekly basis. So instead of posting right away take an extra 10-15 minutes, or more, and search for your answer before posting. If you need to know how to use the search feature there is a link for that in the FAQ as well. Most of the time it's faster to search and find your answer than it is to post and wait for someone to come along and then read/respond to your question.

Also, if you want to continue this wait until you are a full member and then PM me and we can continue this discussion then.

This thread is to further discuss the timing belt change interval.

Default Re: 2001 Accord Maintnence schedule (Evil M0nkey)

My question is this - does the owner's manual really say to do it at 60,000 miles?

The maintenance schedule for my '99 has it at the 105,000 miles / seven year interval, even for severe conditions.

Of course, my car will be nine years old next week... (I bought it on October 13, 1998).

okay "listen" to this.

We are trying to help you save money, but by all means go spend a grand and shut up about it, or wait til 85-90k and get it done. I personally drove my car til a 130k on the same belt, and it still looked new when they took it off.

BTW, Touringaccord is a moderator here, so yeah, he can tell you what to do. Don't like it? Leave.

Don't be an asshat and expect peolpe to be nice and want to help you.

You should replace them regardless of mileage after a certain number of years ( I would guesstimate 8) just as a precautionary thing.

Mileage wise, anywhere from 80-100k I would have it replaced.

Like Evil Monkey said, he hasn't seen one break - neither have I but it's better to be safe than sorry.

So how often should it be replaced in terms of time? I am looking at buying a 2001 with 95,xxx but the timing belt hasn't been changed. Even though it's 10k below the 105k it is 4 years over the time duration I usually see.

Is this one 105k or 7 years? I am interested in what the current info from Honda is but also what is reasonable. I think that if it's 7 years or even 8 years, now that it has been 11 years it needs to be done right away.

Default Re: when to change timing belt?

yes, it should be replaced. When mileage and time is given for an interval, you use whichever comes first. So for a 105k or 7yrs interval... If you get to 105k miles within say 5 years then you do it then, but say in 7 years you have only put 80k miles on it you would still do it because it's been 7 years.
