    If your owners manual calls for the timing belt to be changed at 60,000, you should have it done as this engine is an interference engine and if that belt breaks it will cause major internal engine damage. You can view timing belt replacement costs here www.repairpal.com/estimator and find a shop here www.repairpal.com/directory
