Should I replace a timing belt?

Car: Acura, Legend, 1991     -    Back to Fix-It    -    Acura Legend Repair Manuals

Q.My 1991 Acura Legend had new timer belt at 73,000 miles in 1999. Now, in 2009 and with 102,000 miles, should the car's age (and the timer belt's age) suggest a timer belt replacement because of age? Leonard Alne.

I already checked/done: Engine is water cooled 4-stroke SOHC V-6 gasoline engine; 196 cu. in. displacement; compression ratio 9.6 : 1

My dealer recommends belt replacement but I doubt the need. The car is well maintained (by the dealer) and runs perfectly.

Answer The timing belt replacement interval for your engine is 90,000 miles or 72 months.
This is an interference engine, also.. So I would get it tended to before it breaks!!
