Timing Belt Service

Anyone get timing belt done recently for their Honda? The full works like belts, water pump, fluid etc. Just wondering what range of price I should be budgeting for for 98 Prelude so I don't say yes to the first quote I see.

Is it worthwhile to do it at Dealership and get OEM?

IMHO, go OEM and dealership. Phone around for prices. Timing belt is pretty important.

Just had mine done by the speed syndicate over the weekend in a 89 civic, can’t beat their quality for the price.

I did my 2001 Prelude last year. Changed all belts, tensioner, idlers, waterpump. About $800 (parts and labour). Most parts are made in Japan by Koyo, NTN or NSK.

You can ask the Prelude forum and find out who makes the kit for OEM, and then get them directly from an auto part store.

When I asked how much it costs to change the timing belt on my 08 Accord V6 at a Honda dealer, they quoted me CAN$1200.

Yes it's in that range for prelude too at dealer. I imagine part of the price difference is due to OEM parts?

if ride is fairly decent shape , getting a new ride just barbecue of timing belt is kinda stupid. getting belt work done is not as scary as people think.

If you havent done it yet and don't want to go to a dealership, message jackp0t, he'll probably do it for you if he has time. He knows his stuff as he's been working on H22's for a long time.
