WHEN SHOULD YOU REPLACE PCV VALVE AND SPARK PLUGS ALSO TIMING CHAIN

  1. Open glove compartment
  2. Find Owner’s Manual
  3. Open manual to section marked “Honda Maintenance Schedule”

If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. In essence, I have just taught you how to fish, as it relates to the maintenance of your car. Those who fail to follow a car manufacturer’s maintenance guidelines inevitably come to reget that failure.

Just follow the book like VDC suggest. I doubt if they list anything for the timing chain, assuming it is a chain, as they generally are replaced only if and when they start making serious noise.

A 2001 Civic DX has a timing belt (a 2001 Civic of any trimline/engine has a timing belt). Although the OP wrote “chain,” it’s evident he meant belt.

Maybe he thinks that it has a timing belt, and maybe he thinks it has a timing chain. We don’t really know what the OP meant.

However, if he examines the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule, he will be able to deduce this information. If the schedule makes no mention of a timing belt replacement at 90k or 105k, then he has a timing chain.
