#896 of 899 how many miles change timing belt for civic 93?
Feb 28, 2011 (10:56 pm)
">Believe or not My civic CX already hits 313k, still strong but unforntunaly burns oil about a quart for every 3k, well not too bad. I did oil changed every 5,000 or 5,500 with mobil 1 synthetic 10/30. I ran approx 200 miles a day during week day and he got off on week end:).
I loved my civic, with D15 stock engine and with the new head gasket on 235k while I bought it. Gas consumed around 32-35 mpg. The problem i forgot to asked previous owner how many miles last time he changed the timing belt:(.
Can anybody share how many miles change timing belt recommended?? 60k/80k or 100k??? Thanks:)

I think "1" means a tire rotation but check your owners manual...it's all in there. I also do the oil changes at 15%/once per year as my driving has dropped dramatically...will be lucky to do 1k miles this year. Best advice is to check your manual or go online to the Honda website and register your vehicle and you'll get reminder notices.
Good luck guys!

I believe you would see A1 code only, I did mine last week at 16,700 mile of 10% oil life.

Thanks for the info! A1 would just be an oil change and tire rotation then.
I have an upcoming appointment at my dealership for a state inspection and I'll check if they'll do an early oil change before my trips. I may pass up on the tire rotation as I don't think it is absolutely necessary for a tire rotation, even though Honda recommends it. Don't think it would hurt to skip one and save some money at the same time.
