Honda Passport Timing Belt Service

Passport Timing Belt

Honda Timing Belt 101

Timing is everything, especially when it comes to your Honda Passport’s overhead cam-driven engine. As the pistons move up and down, the engine’s valves must open and close at specific points to make the combustion process possible. The timing belt keeps everything in tune, ensuring the valves and the camshafts driving them are kept in sync with the crankshaft and pistons.

Worn-out timing belts can slip and cause the engine to “skip a tooth” and lose proper timing. A broken timing belt is a game-ender for your engine. With a preventive Honda Passport timing belt replacement from the knowledgeable service team at Huggins Honda of Fort Worth, TX, you’ll avoid the expensive and catastrophic damage that often comes from timing belt failure.

When Your Honda Passport Need a New Timing Belt?

Unlike serpentine belts, timing belts aren’t normally a part of your vehicle that you can readily see. Unfortunately, this makes it easier to ignore the need for timing belt replacement. Your vehicle owner’s manual will have the information you’ll need to know when to change your timing belt. Depending on your Passport’s model year and the type of engine your Honda Passport comes with, you’ll need to replace your timing belt every 75,000 miles or 100,000 miles. Pushing your timing belt any further could severely damage or even destroy your engine, sidelining your vehicle until hundreds or even thousands of dollars are spent on repairs or a complete engine replacement.

Going by mileage alone may not be an option if you’ve recently bought your vehicle used and have no knowledge of when it’s last timing belt replacement was done. If you’re able to do so safely, you can visually inspect the belt and check for any of the following symptoms:

  • Visible cracks and surface peeling
  • Excessive slack
  • Oil leaks from nearby seals
  • Missing belt teeth
  • Frayed edges

If you see any of the above, stop what you’re doing and have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible.
