Timing belt

New to the forum here but have had the car for a bit now. I don't have a shop manual but thought I would ask here about the timing belt. Is there a service interval to changing the belt, my car has about 60K on it now so don't want to grenade the engine! Actually, I don't even know if it's an interference engine but assume it is.
Also, I have an auto tranny and wonder how often I should change the fluid/filter?
Thanks in advance from a newbie!

I've got 65k on the odo and the timing belt and water pump kit should be arriving at my house today.

You DO have a service manual. Check it: 2006 Eclipse Factory Service Manual | Tearstone
