The timing belt should be replaced every 90,000 miles on the 4.7 liter motor. If the timing belt breaks on this engine you may damage the valves and pistons of the engine since it is an interference motor. The timing belt replacement should be done by a mechanic like one from YourMechanic. If you are looking to get the timing belt replaced due to mileage on the vehicle you should check with mechanic to see what additional services that should be done at the same intervals like replacing different fluids,filters and spark plugs.
