Hmmm, some vans thow belts, some don't. Some vans develop debilitating rust on the strut towers, some don't. Our 1998 hasn't done either. Hmmm (again), I wonder if there is some sort of a correlation there? Kind of like vans that thow belts get rusty towers and those that don't, don't.
Donning my nomex and ducking for cover.
