Q: When should I replace the timing belt?

asked by on

I have roughly 90k miles on my car. I was wondering what is the recommended time to replace the timing belt in my 2007 honda accord?

Thanks for asking! For your year, model, and engine size, the timing belt is scheduled to be serviced every 60,000 miles. Your timing belt is definitely due. This is a very important service and must be performed on a regular interval. A trained mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, would be more than happy to assist with a timing belt replacement.
