      Timing belt

      Hi guys I'm from the uk, ive got a 2008 Aveo Lt 1.4L with 42k miles. Do I need to change the timing belt yet? Or is it okay until 60k miles. It's an expensive job. Thanks in advance

      With its age, just do it now before it breaks and becomes more expensive.....assuming it’s an interference engine. If not, roll the dice and hope no tow truck is needed.

      I just replaced the timing belt on my 2004 Aveo last year that had only 45,000 miles. You can always pull the inspection cover and inspect the condition of the belt and see if its dry, cracked, rotted, etc. My belt was dry and cracked,and thats why I chose to replace it.

      The recommended change interval is every 60k, but still depends on the physical condition.
