    Just got a quote of 787 for timing belt and water pump change with a lifetime warranty on the pump. Price includes labor. Is this good I know the dealership quoted me at 937 parts and labor.

    Sounds about right. Think I payed in the $700 range when I had it done on my 06 a couple years ago.

    Shopping around a bit more couldn't hurt though.

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    Depends are they changing out the cams seals and crank seals? Alot of places don't so watch it.

    Make sure they change all idlers in the timing belt area also. Always a new belt tensioner on a new belt. Some techs say it's OK some will change it. Not worth the 55 bucks till the tensioner starts going bad and you have timing problems or it jumps a tooth. Always replace the timing components

    Alot of labor prices depends on where your at in this USA we live in.

    And what brand of parts are you getting? OEM is the only parts I would accept. That would play a big part in my decision - along with their warranty. You get what you pay for...

    787 sounds about right.
    Plan for extras coolant, shop supplies.
    If needed drive belts, hoses, t stat and spark plugs.

    I had the dealer throw in the timing belt and water pump. They quoted me $1200 for both. I told them I wouldn't buy it if they didn't include it.

    787 would probably be a quote for just the belt and pump replacement.. Lifetime warranty usually implicates cheap aftermarket kit. I'd ask for a Aisin timing belt and water pump kit as some of them come with cam and crank seals, but if you're looking to replace cams seals.. Price will hike from there as its not an easy replacement.. And will most likely require new valve cover gaskets, they probably sell you spark plugs and a thermostat as well.. 1200 or higher isn't unheard of.

    I got mine done recently and the dealer quoted me $1200 plus tax for the belt, waterpump alone.
    I took it to a shop I always go to if have to have a vehicle worked on that I don't feel comfortable changing myself. I got charged $891 for a Gates timing belt and water pump kit with the tensioners, pulleys and all. I've never been done wrong at this shop and they are always fair on price as I go to them for tires and my parents to there as well. Haven't had any problems since either. When I first got the truck it went through 2 waterpump within 2 months. Dealer replaced both and covered it all under warranty. Not sure what brand they used but I after the 2nd one started leaking I said to heck with it and took it to the shop and paid the price to have it done correctly and wjth one that works
