Question Timing Belt 2002 Honda Civic LX??? Please HELP

I have a 2002 Honda Civic LX 2-Door with 121,000 miles on it. Now I only had it since 113,000. I went to a few places while doing tune ups ect and I've gotten mixed answers so I want to see if I can get a REAL response here on this board.

I was told since I have a 2002 that I DON'T have to replace the Timing belt cause of a certain reason about stopping them or something? I have no idea. And then another place said that's BS that EVERY honda needs to replace the Timing belt no matter what year.

So this is my question, do I need to replace the Timing belt? I know this repair is like $600 at Tires plus. Any help would be much appreciative.

It's starting with the 2006 model, they went to a different engine that doesn't have one. You definitely need to replace yours. It's not as complicated to do as many other cars are; several people here report paying about $300 - $400 for parts and labor.

That is a lot better price then what I got. Would you know any good shops worldwide that do it cheaper like that? Would it be good if I bought the timing belt myself online and THEN took it somewhere to get it put on?

Sometimes shop don't like it when you bring your on parts. They like to pad the price on parts after they buy them from their supplier.
