When is it necessary to replace a timing belt on 1996 Honda Accord with 65000 miles?
80,000 miles or 10 years, whichever comes first. Also replace the water pump at the same time. This is an interference engine. Severe engine damage will occur, if the belt breaks. And it will break without warning.
I had the timing belt on my Acura TL (1998) replaced at about 70000 miles (before it went out). If your car is 6 - 7 years old with 65000 miles or more, it might be wise to go ahead and replace the timing belt before it goes out. the factory recommends at 105,000, i changed mine at 95,000 what ever makes you more comfortable.
94 New Yorker died on the highway turns over but not start no spark at the plugs how do you know if the timing chain or crank sensor went out What else should you check for?
If your York has more than 65000 miles it is probably the timing belt. Same thing happened to me. There is an inspection plate on the front drivers side if the moter. A little hard to get off but you can see the belt on top of the pulley from there. If it is the belt make sure you are prepared for a lot of work to fix it. I strongly recomend if you do…
