Default Integra timing belt

I'm considering a 92 integra automatic with 102k mi. The timing belt
has never been changed. Any expirences with cost and when it should be
done would be helpful?

It was due 12,000 miles back, so you're running on borrowed time

Cost? Where are you? Do we quote British pounds, US or Canadian
dollars, or pesos?

Actually it was due years ago, not 12000 miles.

I've got an original 91 Integra (non-auto) and have had the timing
belt (and water pump) changed every 90K miles. Cost is not cheap,
around $400 or so, give or take. So far, except for the cost and the
pain in the ass of having it done, neither the belt nor the water pump
has ever failed me. The water pump rational is that it will last
about as long as the timing belt, and cost an equal amount to replace
(again) if you don't do it in conjunction with the timing belt.

If and when you need to replace that shitty plastic radiator they put
in at the factory, DO NOT buy another plastic one, get an identical
metal one, it'll last forever.

On VW's the plastic parts used for thermostat covers, coolant junctions etc.
are what fail on the high mileage cars. The plastic reservoir covers on
radiators dry out (as the above items). All plastics eventually loose their
solvents and fail and it's accelerated by heat.

I agree, no plastic in these areas, but with pressure from marketing your
forced to either trade in or repair.
