At what mileage should I have my timing belt and water pump changed I have a 2.5 liter engine
every 80K-100K miles. all components should be replaced at the timing belt service (belt, pulleys, tensioner, water pump, acc belt, and stretch bolts).
I had to have it replaced when the transmission overdrive part was replaced
