Default How much should a timing belt replacement and labor cost for a 99 Honda Civic?

I got a quote for over $650... (seems a little too high$$$)

We have gotten 3-4 depending on the Honda engine in that particular car. Never done one for more than 400 with the belts included on "any" car ever. They are not a very hard job, but are time consuming and it is time you are mostly paying for. Still the 650 is a bit of a rip to me and I have been doing this most of my life. Get some more estimates from other shops, or if you are mechanical and have good tools get the manual from the library and do it yourself. With the exception of taking the main Harmonica balancer bolt off there are no special tools required over regular sockets and wrenches, and the normal stuff on that vehicle.

That is right. My 97 Honda Civic timing belt cost about $500, 6 years ago at the Honda Dealer. I ask for the timing belt package, which replaces the timing belt, alternator belt (drive belt?), air compressor belt, power steering belt and the water pump. Make sure all of the belts, and the water pump are replace at the same time. I cannot do it because I need a special tool.

the most is 2 hours for that job. normally $50/ hr is the norm. here in houston, my mechanic charged me about $350 including water pump replacement and drive axle replacement inclusive of parts.

it has a manual tensioner so it doesn't take as long as other models. Check with some performance shops. it should be between 350 and 475
