Although some manufacturers do not recommend replacement at a specified mileage, others require it at 60,000-100,000 miles. A camshaft drive belt failure may cause extensive damage to internal engine components on most engines, although some designs do not allow piston-to-valve contact. These designs are often called “Free Wheeling”. Many manufacturers changed their maintenance and warranty schedules in the mid-1980’s to reflect timing belt inspection and/or replacement at 50,000-60,000 miles. Most service interval schedules shown in this section reflect these changes. Belts or components should be inspected and replaced if any of the following conditions exist: * Crack Or Tears In Belt Surface * Missing, Damaged, Cracked Or Rounded Teeth * Oil Contamination * Damaged Or Faulty Tensioners * Incorrect Tension Adjustment
