If you don't reach the mileage requirement but reach the time suggested to replace the timing belt on a 2001 Accord, should you change it even if you drive locally only 4K mies per year?

Asked by Apr 02, 2014 at 06:21 PM about the 2001 Honda Accord EX w/ Leather

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Current miles 145,000
Last changed timing belt 7 years ago.

1 Answer

62,855

Yes, with maintenance items it's time OR mileage. Whichever comes first. In this case the timing belt is made out of rubber. Rubber deteriorates even from sitting. Rubber gets stiff, brittle, and dry rots. Tires are susceptible to this kind of wear as well. Sometimes a tire will dry rot and have to be replaced before the tread wears out. HTH. -Jim
