    If the timing belt breaks will the valves bend like they did on an old
    bmw I had? Thank You

    It's a non-interference engine. Timing belt change interval is 90 000
    mi (140 000 km).

    no, odds are very good the belt will last the life of the car and if it
    breaks call the Tow Truck.. Change it now if it gives you piece of mind,.

    Thanks for the responses guys! I had mine done 60k ago and it was done
    incorrectly and it makes noise. Will the engine valves bend if the belt
    is broken? Thanks again

    My 1997 Camry 4 calls for 60K mile timing belt changes. I think the 6
    cylinder ones call for 90K intervals. I guess the owner's manual has
    the real story.
    I showed up at my Canadian Toyota dealer at 60 000 mi but they told me
    to go home and change it at 90. I think they extended the interval
    beyond what's printed in the owner's manual.

    I ended up changing it myself. Got to buy a shiny new YELLOW impact
    wrench and everything. :-)

    So no damage if the belt were to break?

    No engine damage. But you have to remember that you might be on a
    highway in traffic, and you will instantly lose all power, including the
    power assist on your brakes.

    One MORE reason not to buy Honda, the preferred car of Asian gangsters in North America.

    The previous series - which uses the same four - had two intervals:
    60k miles for 'severe conditions' and 90k for 'light', aka normal
    commuting in light traffic. Our is at 80k and 8 years at the moment...
