Timing Belt NEW NEW NEW [email protected]@K

I bought this amazing timing belt for just over $80 at Discount Auto. MAN, WHAT AN UNBELIEVABLE DISCOUNT!!

This belt is as POPPIN' FRESH as a new timing belt can be! She has ZERO miles on her, and has been garaged her ENTIRE LIFE! You may never find another belt in such PRISTINE CONDITION!

What would you expect to pay for such a fine example of automotive engineering? $10,000+?




NOOOOO!!

Starting price is, NOT 70, NOT EVEN 60, BUT JUST 50 DOLLARSplus shipping for this EXQUISITELY CRAFTED timing belt!!

GENTLEMEN, PLACE YOUR BIDS!!

:rolleyes:

Seriously, I never got around to replacing my timing belt, and now my Stealth is totaled. It's been sitting in my garage, and I don't have much use for it.

Just PM me if you're interested.

Thanks,
Mike

Sorry, it doesn't really say. It's part #95195 at Discount Auto. Says it's made in Italy if that means anything.

Is it hard

Is it hard to replace the timing belt yourself? Becasue most shops will not do work on stuff that you ddin't buy from them. My belt squeks some what, especially when it is damp or raining out? Any ideas? Does it need to be replaced? It is the really long belt on the right side of my engine (when looking from the front of the car). Is that the timing belt, I know this is a stupid question. Thanks!

It's a day's work to change a timing belt. It has a cover, so it shouldn't be visible. Also, it wouldn't slip in damp or wet conditions. It's more likely your a/c or alternator belt that's squeaking.

The timing belt should be changed every 60k mi. b/c engine damage can occur if it breaks.

Replacing it yourself isn't really complicated with instructions and some basic tools. It just isn't the most pleasant thing in the world.

Thanks I appreciate it! So I am assuming that it is my alternator belt, since it does it even if I don't have my air on at all, right? How can I stop it, I tried STP belt dressing and did practically nothing. Does it need to be replaced, or is there something else that I can do?

If these are like DSM's, there should be a screw (bolt?) on the alternator to adjust the belt tension. And the a/c belt is probably adjusted by raising and lowering a pulley in the back w/ a screw.

If you have to replace the alternator belt, you'll probably have to take off the a/c belt first. In that case, you might as well replace both.
