cam belt should be changed at 50,000 miles and not a mile more. cam belt brakage on this engine is very expensive.

The cam (timing) belt should last for the life of the vehicle. A Ford Ranger has a smaller motor, that with the right care, should not have to have the cam belt changed.

Usually the cam belt should be changed every 60,000 miles

The Range Rover 220 Turbo diesel cam belt should be changed every 60,000 miles. If you do not change the cam belt and have a problem the warranty may be void.

As often as the manufacturer recommends

The X-Type Diesel does not have a cam belt, its a chain and never needs changing.

The cam belt should be changed on a Mitsubishi Triton diesel engine when it becomes worn down. If it wears down too thin, it can break and cause driving issues.

There is no set mileage accumulation at which the cam belt should be changed on a 2001 Ford Fiesta Zetec S 1600. The cam belt is only changed if it shows signs of wear or breaks. A diagnostic test can determine if the cam belt is functioning properly.

Well I would guess that if it hasn't been changed yet, now's the time. But seriously Cam belts in general should be changed somewhere around 50,000 miles.

The 1997 Ford 4.6 does not have a timing belt. The cam is driven by a chain which should last a life of the engine.

Must be changed every 105,000 miles. You should also replace the water pump which is driven by the cam belt. Warning: This is an interference engine.

when do i change a cam belt on a mazda 2

User Avatar

72K miles or 5 years (whichever comes first) for most engines. Get accessories belt (alternator belt) changed too as failure can smash timing belt cover causing belt failure.

The cam belt, or timing belt on a 1.6 Ford Fiesta Zetec S is a belt that does not have to be changed unless there are problems. This is one part of the motor that should be left alone unless, the vehicle jumps time. The cam belt can be inspected through the removal of an inspection plate. If the belt is not showing any signs of wear, it should be fine for over 100,000 miles or even the life of the vehicle.

Yes, it has a cam belt. The belt should be changed every 90,000 miles or 10 years whichever comes first. This is NOT an interference engine.

All timing belts should be changed before 100,000 Miles

The 2003 Accord V6 has a cam belt that must be changed every 110,000 miles. The 4 cylinder Accord has a cam chain that requires no maintenance and should last the life of the engine.
