Hoopster, I'd refer to your vehicle owner's manual as to how often your timing belt needs to be changed. The manufacturer has every reason to be upfront with you on this, as it's a safety issue they don't want to be liable for. Bear in mind some vehicles are now equipped with timing chains instead (like BMW), which to my knowledge, never need to be changed. Here's a site that lists a purported 600,000 owner's manuals, including automobile, in case you need it as a reference. Hope this helps! Mike www.fromcartofinish.com

No problem. Sorry, here's a link to vehicle owner's manuals if needed. http://www.edmunds.com/how-to/how-to-find-your-car-owners-manual-online.html Mike www.fromcartofinish.com
