The timing belt special for Honda and Acura vechicles that was popular up in NJ is now available at a dealer in MD.

http://www.andersonhonda.net/Spec...to-service

Includes drive belts, coolants, timing belt and water pump. Its is $90 extra if you need the tensioner replaced also.

Looks like they have been running it since december and a couple of people have had good things to say about it here: http://acurazine.com/forums/showt...p?t=877617

Here is a break down someone posted of costs from his invoice:
Timing Belt 14400-RCA-A01 $46.66
Water Pump 19200-RDV-J01 $111.76
Compressor Belt 38920-RCA-A03 $29.01
Coolant (Type 2 Blue) $14.43
Belt Tensioner 14520-RCA-A01 $90.00

Total Bill with tax & labor: $497.46

Few other, but a bit more expensive, options in the DC area

Honda Accords 03-08 V4 are chain belts that are self adjusting and do not need to be replaced for the life of the engine. V6 have regular belts that need to be changed. Hope this helps some people!!!! woot

^V4 doesn't exist. Should be I4.

Honda V4 does exist. I owned a 1983 Honda Magna V45, which had a V4 engine. 0-60 in 3 seconds! There was even a bigger V65, Honda V4.

LOLED! I'm not to certain I would say that a chain didn't need to be replaced for the life of an engine either...


Any Honda Civic older than '05 has a belt (except the Si model from '01),
Any Accord V6, Pilot, or Odyssey '02 or older has a belt accord
Any CRV 97-01 has a belt

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.

Good deal, my friend drove down 4+ hours to NJ to get his done awhile back. If I had a honda/acura I'd get it done there. Beats any other places prices by far.

Check your manual. May not even be needed. I know for my 04 accord, only V6 version needed it...not 4 cylinder versions.

my 02 accord didnt need a replacement (4 cyl) so like someone has mentioned... you may not need it.

however that car has since died, and it possibly may have been related to the timing chainFrown

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

i don't think you need to change it since its a chain not a belt,

Where in Houston? and is it at a Honda/acura dealership? That sounds more of an independent mechanic price to me.

civic changes at 100,000. think you may or may not need a belt..... just check your car and engine on autozone.com. if they sell it , you need it. that what i do when i'm looking at used cars.

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.
