    Timing Belt for Honda Civic 05 should be changed at 80,000 Kilometers. Not only the timing belt, but there is also a bearing which needs to be changed along with the timing belt. Honda people call this service as "Eighty".
    "Eighty karo yar civic ki".
    Also on this 80K service, they will change almost all the fluids in the car. (Dont have idea about the automatic transmission, but for the manual they do change the oil).
    After the change of timing belt, another important thing is the Tapets adjustment, which they normally do.

    Listen, I bought a second Civic around 120k driven, so I don't really know if the timing belt has been changed or not.

    Any idea how can I find out if it has been changed by the previous owner or not?

    TIMING BELT SHOULD BE CHANGED AFTER 100000KM AND GEAR OIL SHOUDNT BE CHANGED BECAUSE IN KARACHI IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND A GENUINE TRANSMISON OIL AND IT DOESNT NEED TO BE CHANGED

    ignorant people like u dont change the gear oil and get their prosmatec towed from motorway due to transmission failure.

    please change the gear oil first thing. dont use it for more hten 40,000 km's

    timings belts usually last 100,000 kms. confirm from manual.
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    i doubt the car in question has a timing belt...it came with a timing chain i suppose which requires no adjustment or replacement

    Sir

    I have a 2005 EXI PROSMATEC, Honda South changes Timing belt @ 80K and Transmission/gear oil @ 40K KM.

    I think its a pretty decent interval.

    Regards

    lol - I love it when people come and say dont change transmission oil - it will ruin your tranmission - its very like saying, dont change your engine oil at all - you wont find the factory oil again.

    NONSENSE

    the M/T fluid should be changed just as anything else

    btw

    change the Tbelt if you just bought the car - there is nothing more stupid than breaking down in the middle of nowhere

    @Xulfiqar....all who says that dont change ur transmission oil are correct to some extent....actually some manufacturers give life time guarantee for their transmission oil so for that cars one doesnt need to change ATF.....as far as Honda is concerned they dont give life time guarantee in Pakistan so civics in pakistan do need ATF to be changed but yes DONT change your car ATF by roadside mechanics always do that through dealers....

    for sure your car will last a lot more than 100,000 kms if you take care of it . Changing timing belts and other things are maintenance of car so u should change them and give your car a long life

    cutting of gear contaminates the oil.
    Oil should be changed with due time.
