Timing belts.

I'm due to get a new timing belt soon, I have a '94 Toyota Camry, does anyone have a ballpark idea of how much it costs? Mechanics throw in so much, "well there's this and that and you should get this done too..." but I just need to know the timing belt, haha.

I recommend while the mechanic is in there, change the water pump on a car of that age. That may add 100.00, but worth it, IMO

Prices can range from 400.00 to 700.00 to do belt and pump, depend on what part of the country and whether a dealership does it or an independent certified mechanic

Call at least 4 places, 1 dealer and 3 independents, you may be surprised at the price differences they all charge.

yeah, have them check all the belts and hoses. I'd consider new spark plugs and wires, too, if you have never done that.

I don't have $400 period, I'm doing the bare minimum and the rest will just have to wait!

During my googling, I did see an comment that someone at one time had a special of 200.00, not sure how old the post was.

Do you know anyone mechanically inclined with tools?

Yeah, my stepdad may be able to do it at cost at work. I'll beg him, lol.

Thanks for the info, I'm glad I asked, I don't know what I would have done if I just went in and got the bill, haha. I think I would have thrown up!

My dad owns a shop but no clue what he'd charge for that. I DID, however, replace a few last summer for people and know that it's a pain to do and has to be done PERFECTLY or you're still screwed. That's probably why you're looking at paying that much. I'd have a few different places hook a scanner up to make sure that's what you need. They'll also be able to tell you everything else wrong with your car. We don't charge anything to scan it, but some dealerships will.

Good luck!

[The pony is a palomino, 14 hands.] He has a heart of gold and star power... A good horse has a sparkle, a 'look-at-me' attitude, and good movement. There's a white of the eye. Some people hate it, but it means there's a bit of fire in there.

I've gotten them changed in 2 Camry's, slightly newer than yours but not by much, one 98 and one 01.

Both times it was 160 for belt and labor. Water pump is darn good idea too.

Horses make me a better person.
