Q: What mileage do I need to replace my 2007 Honda Accord's timing belt? on 2007 Honda Accord

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have 87,500 miles. When should I replace my timing belt and what else should I have done at that time? Also I have a periodic "whooping" sound (birdlike) when idling. I don't hear it when the AC is off. Any ideas?

If you have the 4-cyl. engine you have a timing chain that does not require service. If you have the 6-cyl. it does have a belt that should be changed at 105,000. You can change the water pump at this time as well. For the chirping, it could be either the bearing in the a/c pulley or the clutch is going bad. Need to determine which one it is.
Thank you. I have the 4 cylinder so I guess I'm okay. I'll have the parts on the AC checked as per your recommendation.
Age-wise if it's the v6 , then you're due for t-belt service. most commonly on those the 'chirping is the serpentine belt and possibly the tensioner getting weak. The serpentine belt would normally be replaced when the timing belt is done and if the chirp is gone then that's all it needed.
If you drive regularly in very high temperatures (over 110°F, 43°C), or in very low temperatures (under -20°F, -29°C), replace every 60,000 miles (U.S.)/100,000 km (Canada).

Otherwise, follow the on-board maintenance minder.
