On a 1999 Ford Ranger , 2.5 litre four cylinder engine :

The 1999 Ford Ranger Scheduled Maintenance Guide shows to inspect the timing belt at ( 120,000 miles )

The Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) shows inspect timing belt at ( 120,000 miles , replace if necessary )

You should never have to replace it. The timing chain is designed to last the life of the engine. It is normally replaced when the engine is overhaul.

The first timing belt change is at 60,000 miles.

It should not need to be replaced under normal conditions.

Unless there is something wrong with it (there shouldn't be), you should never have to replace the timing chain. That's the beauty of chevy.

You should change the timing belt every 50,000 miles. Most cars made in the last decade have a timing chain instead of a belt, and those last much longer.

Timing chains will normally last the life of the engine. You replace it when the engine is overhauled or if it becomes noisy.

The Prizm has a timing CHAIN, not belt. The timing chain does not get replaced on a scheduled interval. It should never need to be replaced. The serpentine belt, however, does need to be replaced. Inspect the belt for cracks and glazing, and replace. It is not a difficult DIY job. It is easiest to do it from under the car, after removing the splash pan.

The Endeavor has a big, beefy timing belt. It can last a very long time but to be safe 105,000 miles is a good benchmark for changing it.

Depends on the year of you Accord. 1976-89 Replace every 60,000 miles 1990-96 Replace every 90,000 miles 1997-10 Replace every 110,000 miles. Replace every 10 years no matter the mileage.

There is no recommended replacement interval given for the chain replacement timing belts are critical, chains are not.

Not often if there tarting to wear and tear you should replace them.

You should replace your running shoes every year.

If you do not have any problems with plugs, change them when you replace the timing belt (do not forget to replace the spark plug wires too).

The timing belt needs to be replaced about every 100k miles. Actually the recommended interval is 105,000 miles. You also replace the tensioner and idler pulley at this time

Never. Unless you have high mileage engine apart for another reason one should not need to change chains.
