Timing Chain

#1

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


#2

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.


#3

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.


#4

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…
