Honda Timing Belt Replacement in Albany, CA

Even though most late model vehicles come with timing chains now, there are still millions of Honda vehicles that are equipped with a timing belt. Typically, your Honda will need to have its timing belt replaced every 90,000 to 105,000 miles – the exact interval can be found in your Owner’s Manual.
