Default 07 Pilot - Timing Belt

Folks

Some questions about the timing belt:

1. When should the timing belt be changed?
2. What does a proper timing belt service include?
3. Is it really a belt? (chain)
4. Is this a "crash engine"? (Belt breaks, cylinders crash into valves)
5. Is this a project for a DIY?

What does your owners manual say?

If it is called a timing belt,. it's a belt. Belt and chain are not used
interchangeably.

I guess that would all depend on your skill level. It's beyond mine.

I thought all V6's were still 60K miles.

It's definitely an "advanced DIY" job. You absolutely need strong
mechanical-aptitude and lots of prior experience with other stuff if you're
going to attempt a timing belt change. There's a LOT to screw up!

Not a Pilot, but the 2001 V6 Accord I had was 105,000 or 7 years.

I don't have my owner's manual handy, but that figure struck me as low
(I have a '06 V-6) so I did a quick Google search and found:

Replacement for a Honda Accord is 60,000 miles for 1976 to 1989 models;
90,000 for 1990 to 1996 models; and 105,000 for 1997 models and later.

That jogged my recollection that even though I knew the manual called
for the replace >100,000. Elsewhere I found a recommendation that the
belt on the '06 needs to be changed out at 110,000 miles.

Regardless, I will be doing it as called for in the owner's manual and I
plan to do the water pump at the same time as others here have wisely
recommended.

I see my mistake. I'm looking at the "severe service" schedule, which kicks
in if the car is driven "regularly" at over 110F or below -20F.

No, to you.

OP asked:
Is this a project for a DIY?

You replied:

Thanks for all of the replies. I have learned from the Gates Belt folks
that this IS a CRASH ENGINE. If the belt fails while running, the engine
will be severly damaged.
