yup 90k is actually a safer mileage (old schelude pre 01), even tho the updated schedule says to wait until 110k miles. i would have it done now because the engine could die if the belt snapped. water pump is also a good bet to replace since everything will already be taken off, and replacing it will be easy. so for parts, you just need the belt, water pump, and some coolant. maybe some cam seals if the ones on there cant be reused.

Try doing something nice for a total stranger, then look back at your car. Notice that the good feeling you get from helping lasts all day, but you constantly have to put stuff on your car to feel better.

i got my 02 civic timing belt changed at 72,000 cause the belt was starting to slip
it cost me 600$ for the belt, water pump, accessory belts and labor
but that was at the dealer
im sure it can be done cheaper
