Was told at first it is probably a sensor...later they call and say its the timing belt and will cost $760. I ask why so expensive.....they say it has a "kit" and all these other things to change w it? Also...going to take 4 hours to do it. Weird thing is they say my timin belt is broken...car won't start, yet before towing it to the shop...it was starting just not staying on. I asked another mechanic, they say it doesn't sound right. I think I'm being taken for a ride don't you?

I was glad to find out on the internet that my v6 twin overhead cam engine was a non-interference motor. This makes a big difference when you have your timing belt break. It should have been replaced every 60K but I was not aware like a lot of other people.

Timing vs Serpentine belts

Car Make: Honda/Toyota/MazdaCar Model:
A timing belt and a serpentime (or accessory) belt are NOT the same thing! Sepentine belts are external and drive things like the water pump, power steering pump and anlternator. Simple to change in most cases. A timimg belt is typicly internal and times the cam(s) to the crank. Can be flairly complex to change.

My car was at 91,000 miles. Took it in for inspection and oil change. They told me I should get the timing belt replaced and have fluids flushed. Timing belt kit was $400 they gave it to me for $344--Flush fluids and oil change was
$529 with 25% Discount(because I told them that's what I could get if I took it to Jiffy Lube where my son works) cost was $397. However-I believe I was charged 6 hrs labor for all this because labor was $594 --don't believe it took that long -this was all done at Merchants

Car Make: HondaCar Model: Element 2003
An Element has a chain belt vs. rubber, so that is okay but...they got me on $1300 worth of other stuff at 100,000 miles. Ask about fluid maintenance before you buy a used car. Changing all of em is 500+ along with spark plugs, checking brakes, air filter etc. I am learning all this buying a used car for my teen. I also had a $650 repair for a couple compliance bushings and $170 for a serpentine belt. Hope it goes another 10 years or more.
