Engine Size: 4 cycle, 4.3L
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
I bought my car at 80K. It’s now 98K, the alt belt looks new, so is it worth (cost-wise) to check the timing belt? And what’s the cost of the Timing Belt service, belts, water pump, etc, do you also replace any seals, balancer seal, and oil pump seal?

Answer:
It would be in your best interest to have the cover removed and the belt inspected. Since it’s due or if it’s been done it should be easy to tell if the components are new!

If it needs the service the following is included:

Cam shaft seals, Crank shaft seal, balancer shaft seal, Timing belt, Water pump, Water pump O’ ring seal, Idler pulley / Tension #1, Idler pulley #2, A/C belt, P/S belt, Alt belt, Coolant, Parts and labor $853.03

This comes with a 5 year 80,000 mile nation wide warranty.
