Can you record mileage of timing belt service in computer?

Wondering if there is a way to record the mileage of a timing belt service so later on someone can look in the computer and see how old the belt is?

You can record in a computer, but as far as I know, there is no service reminder in the ECU for timing belt

I had heard mention of manually entering stuff in carfax. I looked yesterday and you can do it, but it won't show up on a carfax report - so basically useless :rolleyes:

The chip tuners sometimes add text to the vehicle description in the ECU. No idea how you can DIY.
