Timing Belt Data

   If the timing belt breaks on a non-interference design, there is enough clearance between the pistons and valves to prevent damaging contact. An interference design does not have sufficient clearance between those parts and engine damage would result from a broken timing belt.

   N/A indicates no set interval for timing belt replacement. However, it is recommended that the belt still be changed at 60,000 mile intervals.

   Where different years require different replacement intervals, the lowest interval is provided.
