How often should I change my timing belt? 92 Accord?

I have a 1992 Honda Accord with 210,000 miles on it. (I know, that's ALOT.) I haven't changed the timing belt since I bought it at 165,000 miles. What else should I get done along with the timing belt and what's a reasonable price range to pay a mechanic to get all this done?How often should I change my timing belt? 92 Accord?a cars timing belt should be changed every 90,000 to 100,000 miles. if you have not done yet you should get the tranny fluid and filter changed, wires,plugs, cap and rotor, oil, and check the accsessory belts for wear.

basicly you should get a good tune up done. this is all pretty easy to do your self but if you cannot. this would probably be a 300.00 dollar job around me(upstate NY area) get a haynes book from your local parts store and it will help you do it your self. but if you dont know alot about cars leave the timing belt to the pros.How often should I change my timing belt? 92 Accord?let say $300.00.including the water pump.(once the mechanic has the system open,change the water pump too)How often should I change my timing belt? 92 Accord?Every 60 - 80,000 miles about $300How often should I change my timing belt? 92 Accord?I'm pretty sure you have a 2.2 litre engine and it should be changed every 100 000 km (not sure in miles). When you do change the belt you should also change the water pump along with the crank, cam, and oil pump seal since they are prone to leak and your half way there already. Theres no sense in doing the job twice. I dont know the maintenance history of your vehicles but with that many miles though might want to think of doing a tune-up (plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter etc.). Price for the timing belt %26amp; water pump should run you about $600.00 and tune up could run you about $350.00.
