Timing Belt question

Hey all, I've had my Lude for about 4 months and it's got about 96k miles on it. The previous owner never got the timing belt changed, but it was very lightly driven. Will I get any signs from the car that I have to get the belt changed soon? When is the average time for Preludes to change the timing belt?
Thanks for the help!

Re: Timing Belt question

the only sign is when it snaps and destroys your motor. by that time, it's a little late


honda t-belts are recommended to be changed every 90K, sooo.........

Re: Timing Belt question

basically what twoke said but another sign is when the timing belt starts to slip. thats what happened to me, replaced the belt and problem solved.
