i posted this in a differnt forum. i think it should have been here first.
i have just recently acquired an '89 probe gl. it has 127k and i'm not sure when the timing belt has last been changed. how can i tell if it needs to be changed? Is it easy to change? and how much does it cost for it to be replaced?
I'm really just guessing here, but I would say they should be replaced at about 100k. Don't know if there's any way to really tell if it needs it - I'd personally just replace it anyway, then you know for sure it's been done and you'll know for sure when it's next due. Don't know how easy or how much it'd be (sorry - don't know anything much about Probe engines) but I'm sure if you get a workshop manual you'd have no probs.
100,000 I'm told is about the best time to replace, and from what I heard my old man say to my sister in regards to getting hers replaced in her Holden Astra, they are only around $40 or so. But don't quote me on that :)
