Default 1999 Honda Odyssey Timing Belt Replacement?

I've read that I'm supposed to change out my timing belt on my Honda every 60,000 miles, I now have 117,000 and think it's time to change it out. Can anyone help me with instructions on how to change out the belt or any suggestions. I've replaced timing belts on my old car, a Subaru.

yes, buy the service manual and READ. Every car is unique and the DOHC V-6 of your Ody is much different than your flat 4 in your 'Ru.I do not recall the timing belt being as SHORT as 60k - a garage might have told you that. BUT, it would not be more than 105k! At 117k, you are on a thread DEPENDING on where you live. Timing belts in the mild weather, humid east coast seem to last very well - my AC belt and Alternator belt on my 95 Ody lasted 100k miles! The dry southwest WILL dry out the belts much sooner.All this to say, get your belt done soon and you should probably do the cam seals, crank seal and waterpump while you are in there.

This is a job best left to a professional. Don't bring it to the Honda dealer... they will get you for about $800 for parts and labor, including a new water pump. We have a 2000 Odyssey and when the water pump went at 130,000 miles I changed the timing belt. I had a local mechanic do it. He used a rebuilt water pump and 3 hours of labor.... got the whole job done for under $400 with some new gaskets, etc, also. I stopped in and took a look while he was doing the work. The clearances are very tight. This is a large engine in a small compartment. Unless you have a lift, I would not attempt this.By the way, there is probably no rush to replace this belt. The condition of the belt that I took out of my Odyssey was very good. I felt foolish for doing it but I needed the pump anyway and it just made sense to do it. Most people never get this done despite the risks and most cars do not end up in the junkyard or with massive engine damage since the belt, when it does go, tends to snap on startup before the engine is under load or high rev.
