    Anyone know the interval for changing the timing belt?

    Getting close to 60K miles and thought about changing it out.

    The owners manual only shows the interval for the 4 cylinders and not the

    On the net, I've seen anywhere from 60K to 100K to not changing it at all!

    Gates has the complete kit with the tensioners, and I also thought about
    changing the water pump too since I was in there.

    Anyone else have any suggestions, anything else I need to look at on a 60K
    mile checkup?

    I don''t have a recommendation one way or t'other, but the Gates on-line
    timing belt guide shows the change interval on that engine as 60k, and
    indicates it as an interference engine - so just be aware of the
    consequences of a wrong decision to wait.
