Back Again, this time with a 5th gen!

Hey guys,

I've been inactive on prelude zone for over a year now since I sold my wonderful 4th gen prelude (With jdm h22a).
I just picked up a low mileage 2000 5th gen SH model and I'm back!

So lets hit the ground running, I'm at 104k miles and not sure if the previous owner did the timing belt.
What's the best way to check if it was done and can I go longer without doing it?
I know the manual says 105k and I don't wanna play with fire..

Thanks!

do the typical visual checking on the belt first and see if there's any damage to it. secondly, if you do the timing belt change swap in the manual tensioner from h23 as well, for security. Timing is pllaying with fire so if you're not sure about the timing belt, you might as well do it.

^^^ thisss ^^

if you're not POSITIVE, you better be safe than sorry. i listened to the previous owner of one of my engines when he said its a new timing belt.... that motor didn't even last me 3,000 miles and the timing belt skipped.


honda typically recommends 90K for t-belts, and for some people they don't wanna shell out $8-900 for the t-belt job, so they'd rather sell the car and you wanna make sure this isn't one of those cars. if the previous owner said it was done, ask for PROOF (receipts)

Re: Back Again, this time with a 5th gen!

Twoke is absloutly right. One thing that makes me so mad is people who are selling a car, who think that checking the belt means its fine, or not having a reciept but claiming its been changed.

Without proof, the belt has not been changed, and the price must be adjusted. Period.
Checking the belt is your own risk only, to know if you have a immiediate problem you cannot wait on.
Not changing the belt is a complete gamble, you could be fine forever, or break randomly.

I say, I say, Can I get an !!! I can't tell you how many nice looking cars(including ludes) I had to pass up last time I was getting a car...man it was a tragic case. Also, I was always told that 90-95K was when you really wanted to change the timing belt, so over 100 like that is stretching it, to me.

Exactly. When in doubt, DO IT TO IT LARS.

Sorry to hear that. There's a lot of scum that sell used cars. The terms are practically synonymous. I mean, look at the word scum, and what abbreviation do you see scrambled? S-Sales C-Car U-Used M-Man. UCSM, in the right order, and if you unscramble that, Voilah! SCUM
