Asked in Chevy CorsicaTiming Belts and ChainsHonda Accord EXHonda Accord LX
At what mileage should a 1996 Corsica timing belt be replaced and if it does break will engine interference damage occur?

If it's a belt, the typical replacement interval is 60-100,000 miles. However, most Corsicas of that year had timing chains instead of belts -- in which case the chain should last as long as the engine, itself (presumably 150-200,000 miles).
