    Your looking at 3 hours labor. Labor cost varies on shop doing work. Average labor cost is about $80-$110.
    Aftermarket parts cost:
    Harmonic Balancer $75.99
    Timing Cover Gasket Kit $17.99
    Timing Cover $103.99
    The parts prices came from Autozones website.
    Parts price may very slightly. Dealer cost for parts are probably about double or a little less then double.
