The head gasket not only contains the pressure of the controlled explosion in the cylinder, but also separates the cylinder, oil, and cooling channels from each other. Provide a seal between the engine block and the head covering the cylinder.
How do I know when to replace the head gasket?
If it fails, the coolant can leak into the combustion chamber. Head gasket leaks can cause coolant to leak near the exhaust manifold, causing the engine to heat up. The heat should activate a warning light. A sure sign that the cylinder head gasket has come loose is steam (looks like white smoke) coming out of the exhaust system and often under the hood. The engine is losing coolant rapidly and should quickly overheat and stop immediately.
When to replace the head gasket?
It should only be replaced in the event of a leak. The head gasket should be replaced only when necessary, not for regular maintenance.

The timing belt is a rubber belt with a notch and is sometimes referred to as a Gilmer belt. With this belt, the crankshaft drives the camshaft, and the camshaft opens and closes the valve. Without this belt, the engine will not run.

Loose or worn belts can cause clicking or rattling, poor engine performance, overheating, and usually the check engine light comes on. If the timing belt is damaged, the engine will not run. For some engines, damage can damage the interior. Most engines have timing chains and usually do not need to be replaced.
How many times to change the timing belt?
Timing belt replacement programs vary by manufacturer and can range from 60,000 miles to 100,000 miles or more. Replacing the timing belt requires removing many other parts, which increases labor costs. Many mechanics recommend replacing the pump at the same time if timing belt drives water pump.

It is not a matter of reason, but how often it matters, based on the recommendations of the vehicle manufacturer or mechanic who found the belt stretched or damaged. See mileage recommendations above. But keep that in mind. If it is broken, the motor will stop working.
