How do you change the timing belt?

Asked by Oct 24, 2007 at 09:16 PM about the 1988 Honda Accord DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car died while driving.  Replaced battery and ignition coil.  Tries to start but won't, getting good spark and gas.  Was told could be the timing belt.  Is this something that should be done by a garage or can it be done by someone with quite a bit of experience working on cars.
