2006 Honda Odyssey Q&A
2006 Honda Odyssey Question: Timing belt
Honda recommends replacing the timing belt during the 105,000 mile service or at 7 years. I believe most manufacturers use rubber timing belts because the engines are less expensive to manufacture. I think it's a good idea to buy a vehicle without a timing belt, just to avoid that large repair bill in the future. - blindsquirrel
how do I know if the timing belt has been changed on my honda odessy 2006 or not - Visitor
I would say $1500 is pretty high, even with tensioners and water pump, which everyone says your foolish not to replace while you've got everything apart. I'm mad I didn't change a $20 Thermostat. It cost me close to $500 to pull it all apart 10k after the timing belt and water pump. G-R-E-A-T Site for knowing what you should be paying. http://repairpal.com/estimator kinda let's you know if the dealer/shop is trying to rip you off. - audi4me
Recommended timing belt replacement intervals vary with manufacturer. With Ford, I've seen 60k recommended. On Toyota, 90k, and that was for severe service. If the interval is 60k, it is unnecessary to replace the water pump and tensioner, but the front seals should be replaced. If the interval is 90k, go the full nine yards. It is also a good idea to replace all of the accessory drive belts at the same time (alternator, A/C, air pump, P/S), no matter what the timing belt interval, since they have to be removed anyway in the process. The exception is if the accessory drive belts have already been recently replaced, within the past two or three years. Honda isn't the only manufacturer who uses the "rubber belts" (they are actually a rubber / fabric composite). The short answer to the last question is the timing belt is much less expensive than a timing chain, so this helps reduce the sticker price of the vehicle when sold as new. Even timing chains don't last forever. - Visitor
When car is over 100,000 milesIT IS TIME TO CHANGE TIMING BELT-should buy parts by yourself with dealers' coupons and BRING CAR TO DEPENDABLE SHOP OR ASIAN SHOPS YOU WILL GET BEST PRICES!! I bought timing belt parts for my Accord 2002 SE by myself and paid Asian shop for labor -ONLY$365.00 dollars and everything done.It cost me Parts +labor around 1,100.00 totally!! - Green Phong Nguyen
I went to the Honda dealership and need to get my timing belt changed because there are a couple other parts attached to it that need to be replaced as well. $750 for parts and labor - Visitor
Wow $1500??? I just went to the honda dealership and the told me $795 for the Timing Belt and the water pump. I just called my mechanic, he told $596 out the door for the belt and the pump. The person paid $1500, either didn't shop around or the mechanic must have replaced other parts as well. just my 2 cents!!! - Visitor
