    Your Honda Civic has the 1.6L 4 Cylinder, and it has a Timing Belt, which Honda recommends replacing at the 105,000 Mile Service or at 84 months, whichever comes first. Since you have over 84 months of service on the belt, you should have it done. You should also have the water pump and timing belt tensioner and drive belts replaced at the same time.
