Opinions from the Jeep Gurus (Jerry, Distorted, et al) Regarding Timing Belt Life
Got an email from my grandpa who's been reading AllData on his vehicles a lot lately and he wanted to let me know about the recommended change intervals for the 4.0L engine in regards to the timing belt, especially since its an interference engine.
According to AllData, the timing belt should be changed out every 102,000 miles.
When I replied saying I post on a Jeep forum and not once have I seen anyone post about snapping their timing belt in the year I've been on here...he freaked out like I was gonna have my engine explode if I didn't change it asap...so to you Jeep gurus...how common is it for a timing belt to be worn out at 102,000 miles on the 4.0 engine and is it necessary to replace it before then or what is your experience?
