I have a '91 CRX DX
My manual says to change the timing belt between 60K and 100K miles of use. That's a 40K miles window.
I am just over 70K miles on this timing belt. If I used the midpoint of the 60-100k window (80K miles) that would be a year or two from now with the amount of driving I do. Do you guys have a rule of thumb you use to decide when to replace the belt and still be safe?

If you are asking, it's time. It's one of those there that there is no point in pushing.

Thanks
I just joined this forum,...and mainly to ask that question. I went out and took the picture of my CRX so I'd have something on my posts. I live in the High Desert (central Oregon) and there's no rust problem here so the car is old, but almost perfect. Guess I need to order a water pump/ timing belt kit.

If it's 19 years old and sat for a year, without a doubt I'd get it done.
Thanks, guys.
I had read the 60k-100k note and was planning to put it off for awhile since I don't put many miles on it per year but after reading about the 84 months note, I made an appointment to get it done tomorrow morning. I stopped driving it as soon as I read that latest note since I believe in irony. My hope. now, is that it won't come apart on the way to the dealer. I've seen s**t like that happen.
Thanks again.
