when is the time to put in a new timimg belt


Asked by Mar 01, 2015 at 03:35 PM about the 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


your timing belt should be done around 80,000 to 100,000 miles ...also the water pump is driven by the timing belt and it good practice to do both at the same time ...so many times the belt is just done and then a few months later the pump either leaks or makes noise and the same job has to be done all over again ...and its not an easy job it takes about 7.2 hours to do including removing the freon from the system ..also the cam and crank seals should be inspected and replaced as well along with the engine mounts
