2008 Honda Ridgeline Q&A

2008 Honda Ridgeline Question: Timing Belt

At what point should the timing belt be changed on a 2008 Ridgeline with 50k? -
Answer 1
It is located behind the timing cover at the 12 o'clock position of the crankshaft sprocket behind the timing belt. Not something you want to try to replace at home. -

Honda recommends changing Timing belt at 105,000 miles. I recommend you also replace the water pump, timing belt tensioner, serpentine belt, serpentine belt tensioner, serpentine belt pulley at the same time. I replaced mine for less than $400.00 with my labor. At a reputable shop it will run $800 or more. If you are mechanically inclinded and have changed orhter timing belts (even Chevy and Ford), you can do it at home, but if you have any doubts at all have it done professionally. It is about a four hour job. Buy a service manual and it will take you through it step by step.
