Way cheaper then to pay some one to do it. I think there are a few kits that are like $300-$500. I don't really remember.

I did mine a while ago.


The only cost is the parts.... and probably a few tools. I had to buy a few hex sockets....


Also it depends if you get a kit or go OEM. OEM is ****ing expensive. Helps to have a friend too. It's not hard, just look up the DIY thread, and it will take a few hours.

I purchased my kit off Oakos.com I believe it was about $300 (for the 2005) for the Gates timing Belt Kit.
Super easy to do, Just take your time.

Looks like they are running at $344 for an 2004.

If you are not looking for OEM. Here is a decent kit, it's about $300 bucks, and includes everything but the thermostat and antifreeze. I would definetly have a second person help out.

Amazon.com: ACDelco TCKWP328 Professional Timing Belt Component Kit With Water Pump: AutomotiveAmazon.com: ACDelco TCKWP328 Professional Timing Belt Component Kit With Water Pump: Automotive

When I did mine, I was able to locate all gates parts except for the thermostat for $280 parts. Water Pump, All of the Pullies, and the Belt. I Bought the Pullies as a set, bought the belt, and then bought the pump. Very exciting and nervous procedure, but you'll get that big what the hell did I just do grin, when you start the car and she purrs like a kitten. lol. Sorry for the lame analogy.

IF you plan on doing it yourself check out the Meatys timing belt guide, he put up two of them, one with a full video and the other with pic's. I did mine at my shop using Meatys guide and it was a great help, i also posted up some helpful hints along the way in the thread.

good luck

That's where I got my SKF kit from. It included the belt, water pump, cam seals, all necessary gaskets, cam sprockets and the idler pulley. It cost me a little under $300 for the kit and a good friend did the work for me. Took him about 3 hours from start to finish and that included doing plugs, wires and valve cover gaskets I got through RockAuto, too.

Import Image Racing also has the kit+water pump for around 300.

It's hard to determine "cost to you" if you do it yourself since we don't know what tools you have. Just look around the vendors and google for the best prices for the kit.

I did this yesterday, and including coolant and tools I spent roughly $350. I also threw in some redline "water wetter" as a bonus to the cooling system.
