Re: Timing belt interval

My example is a 2001 Ford Ranger 2.5L engine. I have 165k miles on it. Maybe the people who said don't bother said it because it seems to be a non-interference engine, meaning no harm would be done other than being late to wherever I was going.

That is the only reason I said what I said. It should be done, yes. But if it isn't, on that truck the penalty would most likely only be the punishment you stated. If you have a critical schedule/job/etc, get it done.

Also consider the cost of a tow where you drive, depending on distance from home, an overnight hotel stay may also be required.

Some tows from elevated expressways and the like can be very expensive.
