Hi there - the "simplified maintenance guide" from Chevy directs you to replace the timing belt, idler pulleys, tensioner and guides on your 1.8 liter engine "every 3 years or at 97,500 miles, whichever comes first". Most manufacturers do not specify an "aging factor" like this, although ozone does cause rubber to deteriorate over time.
