Reason: added promo picture
do not skimp on the tensioners. they are a major point of failure just like everything else.
they will also upsell you on camshaft and crankshaft seals, which for the first change can be ignored, but inspected on the 2nd, and definitely replaced on the 3rd.
and shake your head all you want on the "diy"er's. we know more then you do ace.
Thanks for the advice and relax...I thought it was just a smile emoticon instead of shaking head...lol. Not disrespect intended...I get plenty of advice from DIYers from the Honda forums and have saved tons based on their advice which I greatly appreciate. But if you take a look at some of the previous timing belt threads here, its been hard to convince some that a timing belt is not for a DIY newbie.
My 07 civic has ~85k. When do I need to replace the timing belt?
Your dealer or mechanic may hurry you up to change the belt on each of your service now.. but dont be hurried.. check your car manual and take few miles time over it.. usually if required, you can wait until 110K major servicing, if your car is not tooooooooo old..
I did at 110K for my accord
Tensioner should always be replaced never heard of a dealer not doing it. $497 is a decent price though.
In most cases you can go a little bit longer then their recommendation but if you have to have it done anyways there is not much point in waiting. Most people will not have the car when it comes time for it to be done again.
