Hello, I have an Odyssey 2001 EX that had the transmission replaced 3 years ago. I know that the timing belt is recommended to be replaced every 60,000 miles--though by all means *please* advise if there are differing opinions on that.

Anyway, is it likely that the timing belt might have been replaced already when the transmission was replaced (i.e. if the timing belt is a part of the transmission)? I apologize if that sounds like a dumb question; I know very little about automobiles, and so far I haven't found an answer by browsing online. Thank you for any help.

The timing belt schedule is in your manual. If I remember correctly it's 105k or 7 yrs whichever comes first. Many wait longer in years and say the belt still looks good. As for the timing belt being changed when the tranny was replaced, that's doubtful unless it happened to be due at the same time and someone had some foresight. The tranny is on the opposite side of the engine. Without any facts that it was changed I would assume it wasn't.

You're exactly right: that's what it says in the maintenance schedule. Thank you so much for that help/advice.
