How many miles on it? Has it ever been changed? If not I would do it now.

40-60k km for aftermarket, just to be sure. Or at least cheched at every two oil changes... If you care about the car.


Six years or 60,000 miles. Whichever comes first. HTH. -Jim


According to the provided link it is 100,000 on this one, but I wouldn't wait that long. Besides, that belt if it hasn't been changed is 14 or 15 years old.
