There have been discrepancies about that. Not every dealer or shop replaces things like the water pump with the timing belt job.

I thought that too. I'm wondering why it would freeze up, though? Humidity collecting and freezing?

Why would you bother? They were put there for a reason, why try to mess with it? It would not affect perceptible performance whatsoever.

105,000 miles is the SOA specified service interval. The belts themselves are usually in good condition, but my idlers get tired. You definitely don't want to skip this maintenance.

If the timing belt job has not been done, it is entirely plausible that the tensioner could be going out. Sometimes when doing the job, the shop may not replace everything. For a proper timing belt...

Piston slap happens on all internal combustion engines to some extent. Usually it goes away when the engine warms up and the expansion of the metal reduces the clearance. If the piston slap is bad,...
