The 1990-2002 Honda Accord timing belt replacement procedures are covered pretty thoroughly in this video, with very clear video on each step along the way. The video also covers the tools needed to make it as simple as possible to do. Although repairs are inevitable on this 6th generation Accord, especially the timing belt, you will get the most out of the vehicle by following the scheduled maintenance intervals, especially for the timing belt replacement.
Although the 1990-2002 Honda Accord video covers all 12 years of the model, the steps in the video should be the same for all the 6th generation engines and the different horsepower variations for the 2.3L, 2.9L and the 3.0 L Engines.
Some of the key tips on the Timing Belt Replacement Procedures are LINING UP THE TIMING MARKS ON BOTH THE CRANKSHAFT AND CAMSHAFT PULLEYS, AS WELL AS THE TENSIONERS BEING TIGHTENED AND THE BELT PLAY BEING JUST RIGHT.
The 1990-2002 Honda Accord timing belt replacement video is a great do-it yourself video, but it would not hurt to also have a Chilton or Haynes Manual nearby to as a reference to answer any of your questions, or go to The Motor Bookstore.
The suggested intervals for the 1990-2002 Honda Accord Timing Belt Replacement Procedures are anywhere from 60,000 miles (Severe driving conditions) to 80,000 miles (Normal driving conditions). From what others have said and past experience, the recommendation would be to change it at 60,000 miles, because the possibility of the belt being stretched, cracked or ready to break, will lead to the possibility of jumping timing, which can lead to internal damage like: Bending the valves, etc…. which will lead into costly repair $$$$$$.
