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.........|

With mine it just died while driving down the road, everything checks out fine, ie: fuel pump, spark, compression. I did have to replace the idler pulley, and also replaced the spark plugs, fuel filter, cam position sensor, next is the crank sensor. The motor turns over normal speed, the crank turns so not a timing belt.

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.|
