the general rule is 60K-100K miles. however, i have been "lucky" at times. I'm just about to take my 98 civic in to get the timing belt changed, and it is at 142K miles. i don't know anybody who would recommend taking that chance though...it's just not worth the risk!

Honda's maintenance schedule says to change the timing belt every 105,000 miles or 10 years whichever comes first. Also change the water pump at the same time as it is driven by the cam belt. As this is an interference engine it would foolish to go over this. You risk the belt breaking and causing internal engine damage that would pretty much cost you more to fix than this car is worth.
