Default A trusty garage for Timing Belt work.

I'm from Orlando, FL and just wanted to ask other around the area for a good place that you guys trust to do a timing belt change around Orlando and what are their prices they usually quote if you've gone there before.

Thanks in advance.

If you use a dealership, and OEM parts (timing belt, water pump, tensioner, idler pulley, 2 cam seals, crank seal, center motor mount) you can expect to spend about $1500.

main thing is to stay away from the chain stores and stick with a independent repair shop or the dealer

I had the timing belt and components changed fairly recently at a local shop that is AAA approved. I had them use all original Mopar parts through the dealer. The charge was $1400. Where I live no big choices to be had around here other than the dealer.

Side note - this place also replaced the 2 camshaft seals. After 2 weeks one started to leak and the shop had to open things back up to replace. They said it was a defective seal (!)

Although located in the Daytona area, Grade A Automotive is a trust worthy, economical shop. The drive over from Orlando might be worth it to you.

I've had nothing but satisfactory work done on SOOO BIG by Grady. I'd scheduled him to replace SOOO BIG's timing belt for well under $1000. Unfortunately the month before that scheduled replacement SOOO BIG blew his belt in Georgia.

His number is 386-256-4842. Good luck with keeping another PT on the road.

Happy PTin ', ptprice
