Hey there MSM,

depends on the Engine in the car.
1.9L SOHC (SEFI on Valve Cover)engine, no, they are non-interferance engines, put a new timing belt on it and go.
1.8 DOHC engine, yes, it will destroy the valves, head, pistons, and if really bad, the block too. These engines are interferance engines, where the valves just barely miss the piston as it comes up, and when the belt breaks it will hit the valves and destroy the engine.

Depends on the main fault, Dealer = $380.oo to 480.oo Good local garage about half and if you clean the car real good maybe even less, we like working on good well keep clean cars. Remove any thing that might get gone - of value. Mostly we do not like the stuff in our way (if it is a dash problem) and if for any reason something falls under the seat and you can't find it you feel ripped off.
