It will ruin the valves (or worse) if it breaks... go ahead and change it now since it's way past due.

Come on, you know you have to listen to your wife!!

that thing has to be rattling like a diesel if you got 206K on the original belt.change that sucker asap as this in an interference engine and if that belt breaks you are looking at a rebuild

you have 2 choices.
either change your timing belt, or throw away your engine when the belt snaps. Cause it wouldnt be worth fixing the engine, rather just replace it. Everything inside the engine would be bent or fuked up... I think timing belt is one of the most important inside the engine. Its like the heart of the engine...

i agree with everyone. i just had mine replaced.i have about 189,000 on my 96'accord 4cyl vtec. my co-workers 91 prelude broke on the way to work and i have a lot more mileage than his car!! he ended up buying a newer car and still trying to sell his prelude. so don't wait to long. get it done.

I here you guys. I've just been procrastinating......as always. It runs pretty smooth but you guys are scaring me.
It's gonna continue to run just fine. Right up until the moment the belt breaks. Then you're really gonna wish you'd listened.

My wife sure can nag though. I hope she won't read this.
What's her email, we'll tell her all about it.
