Good evening, I just want

1/est it true that a belt should be distibution changed systematically between 100,000 and 150,000 km?

2/failure to timely change can really lead to a complete destruction of the engine and prevent it without?

Good evening,
In fact, it varies by make and model to another (example: a 306 diesel, memory is 80,000 km, a C3 HDI is 225,000.)
It would take details of the model to give a correct answer.
On the other hand, it usually changes the water pump and belt accessories at the same time

Good evening, the change a belt after a certain mileage is because if the theory by examining you see cracks or wear that decrease its adhesion, it is best to change it

Yes I agree, but the question was "should ALWAYS be changed." Except in the case of deterioration, maintenance intervals recommended by brand mileage, engine and model, it is better not exceed

Good evening

SYSTEMATIQUENT need to change the timing belt before the mileage stated by the manufacturer, otherwise the engine failure ensured 9 times out of 10!! (Valves, camshaft, ect)
And it's a failure that does not prevent!
And at the same time change the tensioner and the other belts

Each manufacturer determines the type of engine life of the timing belt. Knowing that he keeps a safe life.

After everyone does this, but who wants to change his belt before the deadline is a bit exaggerated. Besides maintenance services say 'attention to your belt will be changed to x miles "

For safety it is better to meet the deadline. The shift or breakage causes the belt breaks the engine and the piggy bank. Regards

link of jpd87 is very good because it highlights another characteristic: age.

The timing belt is rubber, which tends to age. On a moving car tires are slightly cracked well before being worn.

Changing a timing belt is expensive to change an engine much more!
