Default When is the correct time to replace the timing belt of 1995 Acura Integra LS 2Dr?

I bought a used 1995 Acura Integra LS 2 Dr. I dont have the user manual with me. I want to know the appx milease of the car when we should replace the timing belt of the car. Also I have another question how to check if the Car has a power steering / ABS..???

change the timiong belt when it is worn, or shows cracks ect, not nessesarily a milage thing... if you dont know what to look for or just want a guid, I would guess 75,000 miles would be good. the car has power stearing if you are in one spot and you can turn it with one or two fingers.. (rather than hand over hand) abs is the same if you slam on the breaks and the wheels dont lock up, screech or leave marks it has abs

Disregard the other comment he is referring to the drive belt. Timing belt change for a 1995 Acura no matter the type is 85k to 95k past that you are playing craps with your valves as far as power steering you have variable power assist rack and pinion, which means the faster you go the less assist the slower you go more assist. Look in the front left hand side under the hood and see if you have a module with little metal hoses coming out. ABS was rather new then and I do not believe a base Integra would have it also if you do when you first start up the car a yellow ABS light will come on while the system resets itself. No light no ABS

You need to change the belt every 75,000 miles, I'm not sure of your mileage now, but if you dont know about the history of the car, do it now. When you change the timing belt, always change the water pump as well, it runs off the belt and it would be a "just to be safe" thing, Its not very much for the pump, just make sure it is a good quality one. Your car does have power streering, and it is equipped with ABS, the RS model was the only one without ABS, Hope this has helped. Good luck!

If you do not know when it was replaced last then replace it immediatly. Then replace it every 90k miles. Don't listen to the person who told you to change it when it shows where. It can break before any visible wear. It is much cheaper to replace a belt than a valve train.
