    Well my 04 LX just turned over 90,500 today and this means I'm approaching a timing belt R&R. I have read the DIY on this forum and it is AWESOME. Definitely detailed! I put a Timing belt in a 91 Accord I used to own, and it had a secondary 'balance shaft' belt. That job was not too bad...

    Well, I'm over 100,000 miles in my 01 LX EM2 coupe. I'm dreading the Timing belt change and Radiator fluid change costs and down time. Have any of you done this? How long did it take? How much did you pay? Was it DIY or shop or stealership done? Tell me your story. Tax returns are...
