Default Timing belt

Mga pare, do you have the exact part number of the F6A belt and how many kilometers before it is replaced?

Wink

it is highly recommended to replace your timing belt if the odometer reads close to 50,000km. the next change will be on the 100,000km mark. on bigger engines the timing belt is usually changed at 80,000km. i had to learn it the hard way when my original timing belt broke at 65,000km so i ended up getting a new engines as the cost of repairing the damage on the old engine is almost tha same not to mention the hassle and down time when swapping engines.

its better to have a sample ready when you buy one so you get the exact part. i bought a speedometer cable before in banawe for my F5A but when i tried to install it, it was one foot shorter than what i needed so i got a longer one. there's so many variations in our engines and parts so its really better to have the part ready when you buy.

hope this helps!

Cool

you cant tell if your timing belt will break or not. that's why there's a recommended kilometer reading for this. it's not recommended to open the timing belt cover once in a while not to mention the hassle. our engines, although smaller, exert extreme pressure on our timing belts due to our gear ratios, 4 gears in some models, engine displacement, etc.

a perfect example is our higher rpm during cruising speed (5000rpm as opposed to 3000rpm on most cars). my ford sporttrac cruises at 2500rpm even at 100kph and at 3000rpm at 140kph. i only get 3500-4000rpm when i need to accelerate quickly like in overtaking.

so this means for the lifespan of our rides, our engines work almost doubletime as compared to other cars with bigger engines and better gear ratios. this explains the shorter intervals between timing belt changes.

hope this helps.

I suggest since this vehicle is new to you, it's either you check the
belt for cracks or better yet change it immediately to a new one
since we don't exactly know when this belt was last installed by the
owner. The odometer reading is 125,000 so more probably the belt
needs to be changed or it can be brand new! But how can we know?

Anyway it's just P600+ compared to thousands of pesos if you damage
the engine.
