Your car has a timing CHAIN inside the motor. That's your Drive Belt. It's a quick, easy, and cheap replacement. With the age of your car, it may or may not need changed, but its great preventative maintenance, especially if you don't know the age of the one in place. If it breaks, you'll be on the side of the road. Better safe than sorry.
