timing belt

  1. Is there a way to visually inspect the timing belt without going through the complete steps of replacement?

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    As along with my previous posts regarding my new Ridgeline, I have done a full round of fluid servicing/testing on the truck after taking possession as a second owner. The truck is 2009 and based on mileage (97k km, 60k miles) the timing belt does not need to be changed yet. However it still...
  2. Timing Belts and carrier bolt re-seal

    First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    Dealer told me that my 07 Ridgeline had an oil leak related to the carrier bolt seal and I should have it replaced while they change the belts, tensioner and water pump etc (94K - 13 years old) at an additional $397.53 (otherwise it would cost +-$1500 if done on it's own) Here is how they worded...

    1G Problems & Issues
    '06 I picked up 2nd hand about 3 years ago is now showing 97K on the clock. Original owner treated her nicely with dealer service at all indicated due dates. Since I've got 'er, I do all but the recalls myself. At the last oil change, while resetting that interval, the MM said something along...

  6. Anyone broke a timing belt under 100K? 50K?

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    There are several useful timing belt threads here, but I'd like to ask a question, for mechanics or just plain RL users, from a different approach. The reason is that I have just already replaced my TB on my 08 at about 107K, along with the other belts, plugs and water pump. Due to the stout...

  11. Underhood engine related rattle (IMT?)

    1G Problems & Issues
    199.5K miles on my 06 ridge and a new and nasty rattle has developed that seems to be engine related. The rattle sound like it is up high in the engine, maybe in the intake plenum? I have recently changed the timing belt, water pump, timing belt tensioner, accessory belt and its tensioner (about...
  12. Timing Belt Condition Report

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    All, My 2006 with 55k miles on it hit the age recommendation to replace the timing belt. Had the belt(s), water pump and tensioner replaced. All in cost was about $680 parts and labor at the Honda dealer. I had the dealership save the parts. Not sure I was surprised, but the belt showed no...
  13. Timing belt

    1G Problems & Issues
    Had to have timing belt replaced. Called by dealer and told I had to get additional timing belt tensioner that was not included in the "package". Seems like the tensioner should have been part of the "package". Also paid for oil change and after reading about it I think that is part of the...
  14. 60,000 Mile Service ???

    1G Problems & Issues
    Morning all, I'm a rookie here, but this seemed like a good time to start. I have 59,900 miles and I'm told by the manual that it's time to have the timing belt replaced, and have the transaxle/transmission flushed. Is this really necessary at 60K? I do no hauling or towing - I get some...

  16. Timing Belt in Arizona

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I just purchased my 06 RTL two weeks ago with 73k on it. Arizona is 110 degrees one month of the year. Does that constitute a need for a timing belt change at 60,000 (13k miles ago) or should I rely on the Message Minder? What have you Arizonan's done?
