    Timing Belt replace?

    Hi All -
    I own a 2005 Odyssey with 56,000 miles.
    The car is infrequently driven, sometimes sitting for a week or two in a freezing garage (Michigan).
    I am concerned that the very cold weather and infrequent use of this 12-year old car could have weakened the timing belt.
    Any advice on replacing the timing belt under these circumstances? I am about to take a 4,000 trip across the west, hence my concern.
    Thanks so much in advance.

    Is this the original timing belt?

    If so, it is well past the 7-year service interval. Change it before starting that big trip. If it breaks, it could ruin the engine.

    +1 on a change before the trip if it is still the original belt. 12 years is more than 50% past the recommended change interval time.
