If you have the 2.0 DOHC engine, it should have been replaced at 60,000 miles. You cannot just look at a belt and tell if it needs replacing. It may look fine and also be ready to fail, as there is no warning of imminent failure. This is why the manufacture has a set time for replacement. Your engine is NOT an interference engine so no damage will occur if it breaks, but you could be stranded and have to pay for a tow. So, if the belt has never been replaced, you are running on borrowed time and it could break at any moment. Replace it ASAP!

You have 2002 Hyundai xg350 with 97000 milesshould you replace the timing belt?

Yes the timing belt should be replace at 60,000 miles. The 3.5 engine is a interference engine. If the timing belt brakes the valves will make contact with the pistons and will thrash the engine. Check your owners manuel. This is a double overhead cam engine and should be by hyundai service center. It is not a job for the novice. I am a shade tree mechanic, do all my repairs but not is one. I have changed timing belt before and would not attempt this challenge.

"yes 2002 kia Rio engine is interference need to replace timing belt at 60000 miles or maybe a bit longer. mine broke at 97000 and bent 12 valves got lucky head was not damaged still $1200 to repair!!!!!" I highly recommend following your maintenance schedule when it comes to timing belts TO THE LETTER. As the previous author noted, what would have been a $400 job turned into a $1200 repair.

The concept of place value is relevant only for digits within a number, not for entire numbers. The question, therefore, makes no sense.
