Timing Belt replacement cost

I am about to buy a 2002 xterra 93k miles. I've discovered from this forum that the timing belt needs to be replaced @ 105k miles. How much does this job cost? (parts and labor)

Thanks

Of course there's always been a rivalry between Blackfoot and the Shoshone tribes anyway. Indian signs getting thrown around and my wife looking at me like I'm the idiot. I mean really, someone flashes me 'Your mom looks like a doe's ass' sign and it's on!

From a shop or local mechanic anywhere from $500-$1000 Dealers tend to be closer to $1000. Just depends on what all you have them do. Some will quote you less for just the timing belt replacement but other things like the water pump, thermostat, crank and cam seals should be done too. Plus theres 2 short hoses that should be replaced while they are "in there".

I'm at 107k miles and I haven't done it yet. I hear that it's acceptable to go ~10k over. Do so at your own risk if that's what you decide.

A "suggestion" for anyone who doesn't want it to snap or loose teeth possibly leading to a mangled motor

We have had a member hit 160k before changing it.. but he said the belt was like a worn out shoe string..

Ive read where people at 105k say the belt was ready to go at any time..

I dont think id press my luck with it.. 1000 vs 3 to 4k for a new motor seems ok in my book..

I had mine changed at 98,000 miles and the mechanic said it was ready to go. No sense pushing your luck. It's plastic and degrades over time, even with no use.

I had the belt, water pump, and cam seals (crank's were fine) done for under $400. But I really should have had them replace the tensioner and thermostat too, which I may pay for.

I have a 2003 Xterra with 128,000 miles and still have not replaced the timing belt. The dealership offered to replace the timing belt and the water pump, hoses and tensioners for $795 and said it was about 4 hours of labor. It's not terribly difficult so I will probably try it myself next week...but at 128K I know I'm really rolling the dice since it's a belt. If it were a timing chain or timing gears then I'd say you could probably string the replacement out some..
