2011 tsx with A14 code

I have a 2011
Acura"><font color=Acura" /> Acura">Acura
TSX with 102k miles. I got code A14. Im familiar with the A1
service"><font color=service" /> service">service
. However, Im wondering about the 4. The dealer tried to tell me that this is a timing belt change and the cost will be $2200. I know this car doesnt have a
timing belt"><font color=timing belt" /> timing belt">timing belt
. My question is does the 4 indicate that the timing change or supporting components (sorry, Im not very technical here) need to be replaced? Or do they just need to be inspected? Or is this an indicator about spark plugs and not my timing chain at all?

Thanks for looking.
