I won't be much help with timing, but check and make sure you don't have any valves that are stuck open.
But you are well overdue on the time-based part of that equation. The rubber and the components therein have an age limit too. The same is true really for all rubber partsWas thinking at 50k we haven't hit the recommended belt change mileage yet
At 30k I'm not there yet either. Yet as we speak my Accord is sitting at the shop getting the belt replaced.Was thinking at 50k we haven't hit the recommended belt change mileage yet LOL.
You know what else would be pointless? Giving someone advice to get a car running that has a 15+ year old timing belt on it. Lifespan of timing belts is 70-100k or 7(?) years, I believe. (Somebody please correct Me if I'm wrong). SEVEN YEARS. It's been on Your car TWICE that. Just because it's "still shiny", that doesn't mean SHIZZ. How many broken timing belts have You seen in Your 20 years working on cars? You ever seen any that WEREN'T shiny? I haven't. Unless they shredded and fell off. Or there was no belt cover..but no ones has info on valve problem ?.
the timing belt is not the issue;
it is timed property and the cams rotate
the valves not opening is why it stopped running.
It would be pointless to replace a timing belt on a vehicle with
not functioning valves since it would so nothing to get it to run
