How often should the timing belt be replaced?

Asked by Mar 02, 2017 at 04:40 PM about the 2003 Acura TL 3.2 FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2003 Acura TL has 200,000 miles on it. We've had it since it had 35,000
miles and have never replaced the timing belt. How crucial is it that we do
this? The car runs great day in and day out.

Very crucial to get it changed ASAP! It is way over due. Every 60,000 miles is a safe time for replacement.

You need everything changed for the timing belt, like belt tensioners, idler pulleys, timing belt guides, and the water pump. The timing belt runs the water pump.
