    ITS UNDER THE UPPER TIMING COVER SO APPROX 200.00 TO 300.00 PLUS PARTS. ALL DATA DOES NOT GIVE AN EXACT TIME

    Thanks. I found it on LExusBLog....parts $67 with tax, a novice did the repair in 45 minutes. Car will need water pump and timing belt replaced soon...so the shop thats gives a fair price for this repair will earn the bigger job. THanks again

    so i guess since im so far away im not in the running for the timing belt job. lol the timing belt job with water pump should be around 675.00 incl parts and labor,also repl timing belt tensioner and reg belts while your getting the job done.will save you money on the labor of the tensioner and reg belts down the road

    haha....no unless she makes her way out to CA.....No deed goes unrealized....the fact you stepped up will pay dividends....I've been in business 24years and I know it to be true.
