What is the recommended mileage to change the timing belt?
There is no correct answer to this question, though it is, asked a lot. With the different number of manufacturers and methods of manufacturing, it is difficult to put out a ``one size fits all`` concept here.
Most manufacturers use a time or mileage-based change, depending on what comes first. However, it is recommended to take this period as the maximum stretch, and come in for a check-up before the designated time.
This could range from 40,000 miles up to 100,000 miles, and from four years up to six years.

In comparison to gearboxes and clutches where the problem arises out of nowhere, cambelts have a natural replacement time due to the wear and tear. It is advised to not exceed the recommended time, as it can lead to severe internal damage of the engine.
