When should I change my timing belt?
Can you tell me when I need to change my timing belt as I've only had the car for three weeks and its done 90,000 miles.

If it hasn't ever been changed it needs to be, along with the smaller pulleys, tensioner and if the waterpump is driven by the timing belt, that too.
