Hi My 2002 honda civic LX ha a Time Belt Motor put in at 68009 miles now at 97000 miles my honda dealer says I need a new timing belt. Are the motor and the belt two separate things? Thank you Harriet

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Maryann Croce, Owner at Croce’s Transmission Specialists Yeah the motor and the belt are two separate things. The timing belt is a serviceable item by mileage, they need to be changed around 60,000 miles for the first time and again at 110,000 miles.
