Any ideas on likely Frontera Timing Belt Replacement Costs?

Unread post by mischef » August 12th, 2012, 7:20 pm

Hi,

Just got my 2000 LWB frontera serviced and was told that it appeared to of never had a timing belt replaced.

It has done almost 230K and I am eager to get it changed.

Does anyone know an approximate cost for doing this?

Thanks :)

Which engine mate?
SOHC, DOHC

If its the 3.2L 6VD1 SOHC engine, its not too bad, belt was around $100, idler pulley was around the $70, Tensioner pulley was around $120, the water pump was internal so add $150 for that (Cheap insurance).

Not a difficult job on that engine, but time consuming. (as it is on any engine i guess)

I read somewhere the holden manual recommends 3 or 4 hrs to change it, but realistically, allow 5 or 6.
If it can't be fixed with duct tape or a hammer, It must be electrical

Hey,
If you are not doing it yourself you should budget about $1100 i had mine done about a year ago and when it was time.
We needed the timing belt kit which has new pulleys tensioner and belt this was around $500 then we replaced the cam cover seals and the water pump as that comes off to do it so might was well do it while you are there.
