I have been told by my best friend who runs his own business that a timing belt is needed for repair every 225,000 miles. I'm very close to that Mark and I'm really scared for it to snap while I'm on a freeway stuck in traffic or in a place that I'm not familiar with. Please. I just need an understanding of how it all works.
