The motor turns over normal speed, the crank turns so not a timing belt.

freemind It took me 3.5 hrs total to do mine. Albeit I have a place to work on it. I replaced the belt, tensioner, idler, water pump, serp. tensioner, serp. idler and installed adj. cam gears.

A shop would of charged a bunch to do it.

amc49 Change the water pump too at same time, it goes bad and destroys brand new belt.........

amc49 Are we sure it's the timing belt? I ask because based on how motor may have stopped it could easily be something else, especially with that motor.

Now, if water pump died, then yes probably need the belt too...........

JJMcKinney I was quoted 700 on my '03 2.0 SPI and it was only booked at 2.5 hours. Didn't think it was to bad of a price! Thankfully it did not need to be replaced.

whynotthinkwhynot It's going to cost more than $500. That's a lot of labor, and there will be parts that need to be replaced at the same time- tensioner, possibly water pump depending on design, and serpentine belts if it's time.
