Timing Chain



What should a timing chain and installation cost for a Honda Accord 2003?


The best way to find this info is to get estimates from 2 or 3 different local mechanics. Pricing varies greatly from region to region.


It depends on where you live. Call around for some quotes from independent mechanics, dealerships, and chain operations, like RPM Automotive and maybe a tire seller.


Are you sure you need a timing chain? Those things should last a LONG time. I’d be shocked if a 7 year old car needed a new chain.

If you have a 6 cylinder, it used a belt, and those should be changed at regular intervals.


Timing CHAINS are not a normal service item…Are you sure you are not talking about a rubber belt?

If it is a belt, replacement cost, including the idler (tensioner) and water pump can approach four figures…
