2005 Acura TL Q&A

2005 Acura TL Question: Timing belt or chain

At how many miles should these be changed? I have a 2005 TL. Thanks! -
Answer 1
The 3.2L V6 engine on the 2005 Acura TL is driven by a Timing Belt. They recommend to replace it every 90,000 to 105,000 miles. -
Answer 2
The repair book says at 60,000 miles, however, this is only recommended. The belt is inside the engine and can't be examined. I waited till just over 100,000 miles to do this on my 2005 TL because it was so expensive. I also replaced the water pump as suggested. I did not do this at Acura, but other repair shops had a similar price, about $800 for both items. -
