View Full Version : Great deal timing belt kit

I just wanted to share this site (http://www.timingbeltkit.com/servlet/the-126/Timing-Belt-Water-Pump/Detail) for timing belt kits. It is worth a bookmark if you haven't already.
I guess this is old news since the company has been in business since 1980. Still this is a fantastic deal on all the parts you'd ever think to order when doing a timing belt. The parts quality at least appears good and the price is excellent.

Disregard the price and I still love that I can order one set that includes everything you should probably replace, but will forget to order.

I know where I am going to buy my next timing belt kit.

i dont trust other manufacturer for timing belts besides genuine.... its jus me... if i cant get genuine i go with napa.

Yeah, I hear you. Gates (NAPA belts) or OEM is the safe choice. I still like the idea of a kit...

damn, good price and good parts! bookmark.

Gates makes good shit.

That is an incredible price.
At least the water pump is good to go, AISIN is the OEM supplier, and it's a complete pump. I don't know about the belts and seals though, never heard of them.

About how often should timing belts be replaced?

My celica I just saw a little tag on it, saying it was replaced at 79,xxx miles, and it has around 157,xxx now...

Is it due for a change?

I would say change. I try to change mine out every 80k miles and you're right at it. Though some recommend sooner, they can go much longer, well into the 100s.

How much time is gonna be needed in doing this?

Are the 5SFE interference engines, or not?

01-08-2008, 04:46 PM
5sfe is not interference engine. I tried it when my timing belt broke at 130 000 KM.

130000km and a single timing belt is good!

But change yours at 100 000km according to manufacturer.

So then, if the timing belt DOES break, I won't have any other issues with the car then, correct?

I was on DodgeForum reading up, some guy just bought a Neon and some guy said since that is an interference engine if the timing belt breaks, it'll screw other things up...

This is all new to me, so explain, if you can, what a non interference engine means...

01-08-2008, 06:47 PM
Non interference in terms of what it means to you is that if the timing belt breaks, you won't have the pistons crushing valves and other such engine-damaging nonsense whereas interference engines do allow that kind of overlap. Basically it means you're very much inconvenienced if your belt goes, but shouldn't have any other damage aside from what the belt itself may do flapping around, which typically isn't much.

Ok, that's what I was thinking, thanks for clearing that up for me!
