One of the most common oversights in car maintenance is the failure to replace the timing belt at the recommended intervals. Unfortunately failure to replace the timing belt or timing belt kit as specified can cause extensive engine damage (valve to piston damage) once the belt breaks or even stretches to the point where it skips one or multiple timing belt teeth.

Timing Belt or Timing Belt Kits should be replaced between 60,000 kms – 150,000 kms depending on the vehicle make and model. The list below is a guide for popular makes and models, however service manuals should always be consulted for detailed and accurate replacement interval.
