Hello, thank you for writing in. When changing the timing belt, it is often recommended to change the water pump, chain tensioner, and the gaskets involved with accessing the timing chain. The price is vary greatly depending on what kind of parts you are buying and who you are buying them from. However, they do sell a timing chain "kit" for you vehicle, meaning it comes with everything you will need. If you are doing the work yourself, this may be a good way to cut costs. Secondly, at the same time it is recommended you change the serpentine or drive belt and its tensioner as well. For more help, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
