Just got my unit serviced. They must have seen me coming, suggested getting timing belt done, getting a D-Service done and a Decarb done. I only travel 4000 miles per year. Do I really need all this? Can I do some things myself? Over $1000 work quoted. Thanks.

the maintenance schedule has a calendar as well as a mileage column.

just think, the next time you start your car, the timing belt will be 12 years old and has experienced thousands of temperature cycles - some from freezing or below, up to - maybe 150 - 200degrees? or so?

would you want to install that belt on your car?

well, it's already there.

...:gasp:...that would be enough for me to change it. Timing belt is cheap compared to trying to repair the damage due to breaking while driving.
