Default Re: Timing belt Replacement

Around $450 to $800.

Make sure new shaft oil seals on the camshaft and crankshaft
are included. Also, if the tensioner was not changed at the
last TB change, consider having it changed, too.

Since the water pump comes off during this job, some coolant
will drain. If an independent import car shop does the job,
make sure it tops off the cooling system with only OEM
coolant at the end of the job. If the shop says it doesn't
have this, buy a gallon jug at the dealer for around $15 and
provide it to the shop.

You might consider purchasing the necessary parts separately
from an online genuine Honda parts dealer, such as
www.slhonda.com or www.hondaautomotiveparts.com . Of course,
some shops already charge lower prices for parts used in
work they do for you.

Dealer prices tend to be a bit higher; independent import
car shops, lower.

You should call around to get quotes.

that's commonly recommended by people trying to sell you stuff, but not
great advice. there's considerable chance of damage to the sealing
surfaces in removing a seal without complete disassembly, something that
is /not/ happening in this situation. decent oil has seal conditioner
that stops any rotating seal leaks completely - i know this from
experience. and besides, it's completely illogical to change the low
velocity seals [the small diameter ones on the pulley end of the crank
and the cam] just because they're easily accessible when /not/ changing
the higher velocity seal on the output end of the crank, just because
its hard to get at!!!

my advice is leave the seals well alone and use a good quality oil like
castrol gtx. gtx has dried my 17-year old driveway sabotage machine up
completely and she doesn't drip a drop any more.
