    Timing belt question

    Hi Guys ,a friend of mine has his engine done only 59000 kms on 99 sti so it has been 6 yrs now..

    SO Should he change the timing belt now, or just wait until it clogged 100000 kms or the km that it says on the manual book.

    and why? thanks

    I think the recommendation is every 100,000 km, or 3 years, whichever comes first. So under those circumstances i would change it. And they do tend to dry out a bit over time, so would probably bet for the safe side and have it changed.
