When do you replace the Timeing belt on a Mazda millenia?
The previous response was: "I have a Mazda millenia 1998 that has over 200,000 miles on it. I have always replaced my timing belt every 60,000 miles. I hope this helps."
The manual says to change at 105,000. The reality is that the belts are kevlar and will likely last much longer. The engine is non-interference so it will not damage the engine if it breaks. The experts I speak with say they would drive it until it breaks.
It will cost you around $500 at least in labor to replace and many times if the job is done improperly you will have other problems as a result.
For the record, my 99 S has 110,000 on the original belt. I'm not even thinking about replacing it... until it breaks (if that ever happens).

There generally are no "signs," or symptoms which indicate the need to replace a timing belt. Most of the time, the belt fails without any warning. For this reason, it is important to follow the manufacturer's time interval recommendation for timing belt replacement. Although not true for all vehicles, the failure of a timing belt during operation of the engine can result in severe and expensive damage to the pistons, valves, and even the valvetrain. Read More

the millenia requires an oil and oil filter change every 7000 miles. Check and adjust the brakes every 25,000 miles. The belts including the timing belt require replacement every 60,000 miles (although I did my millenia L at 70,000). Be careful here since the S model has special needs with that supercharger. Change all the fluids at 100,000 miles as well as the distributor cap and rotor, plug wires and fuel filter (which is accessable… Read More

what caused knocking sounds for me was a pully on the serpentine belt that was attached to the power steering pump. the pump gasket busted which in turned damaged the pully.

You did not install the belt correctly. It is more than likely out of time. I would advise you to have an expert look at it. You're lucky in that this is not an interference engine otherwise you would've had serious damage when you attempted to start the engine. Read More
I am working on this. It is not a good idea. If the belt broke, I was told the valves may have hit the pistons. If you are looking to replace a worn belt, go get it done at an auto shop. The belt needs a special tool, and adjustment. It takes 2 hours to replace the belt, and you need a wheel puller. Read More
