Considering that when you change a timing belt you ALWAYS change the water pump all seals/gaskets, timing belt idler gears, etc. many times that comes all together in a kit.
It can be an average cost of around $1100-1200, sometimes a little more sometimes a little less. The main cost will be labor, since it is a fairly time consuming job.
Not unless you care about your car. When a car manufacturer recommends that you change a timing belt, and usually a water pump. It is for your own good, they may last an average of 100,000 miles; however, it's always best to change your timing belt well before then. If your timing belt breaks it will bend your valves, ruin your head, and cost a lot in labor. So pay $500- $700 now for a new timing belt, water pump, and labor, or wait until your timing belt breaks and pay $3000 for a new head with valves and labor. It's up to you. Happy Motoring!!! :) :) :)
timing shift on engine with timing belt are usually caused by worn timing belt teeth and resetting it is usually done by changing the belt. on new car there is no more timing adjustment the computer does all the required change. it is a must that the white mark on the new belt are aligned with each of the gear mark.
Normally my Honda Dealership replaces the Timing Belt, Water Pump, Valve Cover Gasket, Crank and Cam Seals all in one shot. Service life is about the same for all of them and the Honda Tech is right there anyway to do the Timing Belt, which saves the customer the Labor Cost of coming back later to do it. Prevents us from getting the customer back a couple of months later mad that they have to pay almost the same amount of labor again for another part to be replaced.
Normally they will also replaces the exterior belts if they have not already been replaced.
Go to www.repairpal.org for what the local cost are to be expected in your area, just keep in mind that it only lists the timing belt by it’s self there.
I recommend 60-90K Cost depends on the dealerships labor but usually when your doing a timing belt, radiator hoses and fan belts are removed and should be replaced while your in there. Its about 3hrs, more if other things need to be replaced while in there. So you looking at $300+ for labor only
If you buy this car, you should change the timing belt asap. Check Edmonds, and other internet sites for average prices, (197k miles brings the price down for sure, internet sites should give an amount to deduct for the miles) average for this year is around 70k). The fog light and small dent aren't big issues, but deduct the cost of timing belt change from prices you get on the internet. Good Luck coountrycurt0
