The new standard for timing belt replacement on the 944 is 3 years or 30K miles. Looks like it is due.

A valuable item recovered from an undeserving storage, usually in the countryside, where it lay more or less forgotten, especially vintage automobiles (Ferrari, Porsche, etc). It was stored for 10 years.

It has been discussed in many of the forums since its an interference engine and failure of the timing belt means crashed valves.
