Timing Belt Replacement

When replacing the timing belt, what other parts should be replaced?

cover gasket, belt tension pulley and water pump.

And the balancer belt.

I also think it’s a good timt to replace the thermostat and radiator cap.

…+ serpentine belt and its tensioner.

Each car and each engine option typically have different recommendations.

Your '94 Accord shows two separate timing belts, one for the cam shaft and one for the balancing shaft. They both have 90,000 mile change intervals. This car also has a timing belt-driven water pump. So the water pump should be replaced, as well as the tensioner and the tensioner pulley. There are also different installation procedures for a VTEC and non-VTEC engine for this car.
