Honda - Accord Prelude 1996 2000
The manufacturer recommends replacement of the timing belt (and water pump inspection) under normal operating conditions for Accord and Prelude models every 84 months (7 years) or 105,000 (168,000 km). If the vehicle is operated in high temperatures (above 110°F or 43°C) or very low temperatures (below -20°F or -29°C) the timing belt should be replaced every 60,000 miles (100,000 km).
If, however, the timing belt is inspected earlier or more frequently than suggested, and shows signs of wear or defects, the belt should be replaced at that time.
WARNING On interference engines, it is very important to replace the timing belt at the recommended intervals, otherwise expensive engine damage will likely result if the belt fails.
For manufacturer's recommended service intervals, refer to the maintenance interval chart located in Section 1 of this guide.

This is an excellent time to check or replace the water pump. Even if the timing belt is only being replaced as part of a good maintenance schedule, consider replacing the pump at the same time.

WARNING Do not clamp the housing of the auto-tensioner, component damage may occur.
WARNING Do not apply extra pressure to the pulleys or tensioners while performing the adjustment.
