Timing Belt Replacement 2013 V6

My dealership recommends a package that incl. changing of the TB, spark plugs, and "inspection of the water pump" Does not incl. tensioner.

I've been told to just replace all at once. Do you recommend this?

I've read also that there are problems sometimes with a rear seal leak.
Has anyone had problems with their 2013 TB replacement from a dealer?

What does your quick forum search show you about timing belt replacement?

Have you read your owner's manual?

Which maintenance code popped up?

Every timing belt that I have changed I've done the water pump and tensioner. Why not?
At least in VW engines the tensioners tend to fail before the belt.

Yes while your there you might as well change everything out. I bought my timing belt kit on ebay, all parts were OEM and it was like $450 I believe. My old car was a 07 Accord V6.

If your car does not have over 100,000 miles it's not time. Otherwise, the whole thing is normally offered as a package by most dealers (belt, tensioner, and water pump). They do this since the labor for the belt involves removing all these other "consumable" parts that will fail before the new belt likely would. Also at this mileage, spark plugs need to be done too. If your dealer is not offering the water pump and tensioner as part of the belt service, go to another dealer. The "honest dealer" already removes the pump and tensioner to do the belt, you really should just pay for the parts. This is the type of service to shop around, and some dealers offer coupons. I took my Acura TL to a Honda dealer and saved $700.00 in 2013 on the belt and plugs ($1200: belt package, 6 plugs, oil & rotation, rear brakes).

Replace everything including the water pump / tensioner / tensioner spring / with the timing belt. My Integra B18C engine belt was way too slack with the old tensioner & spring. I rented a car to get me thru the new part search back then. People on the Integra.net forum that didn't replace those parts complained of mis-firing engines after spending all that time cracking open the engine. Going back to do the job right with new parts doubled the effort. Better to be safe .... well you know.

YES absolutely YES. How would you feel if your water pump failed two weeks after replacing the timing belt? The technician would have to remove all of the parts he just removed a couple of weeks ago to replace the water pump. The part is probably less than $50.

Find another dealer. Dealers will offer a discount coupon for timing best replacement which should include the belt, pulleys, tensioner and water pump. Also, while they have the car you might want to replace the spark plugs. The rear ones are hard to get to and the platinum ones are God for about 100,000 miles.

If you are at or near 105,000 miles you should replace

1. Timing belt
2. Water pump
3. Timing belt tensioner
4. Timing belt idlers
5. Spark plugs
6. Coolant
7. Serpentine belt (assuming it is has never been changed).

You should also have them inspect the front main seal and the camshaft seals. Some people change those as well, as the labor to do then later is the same. With only 4 years I would not replace them unless they are leaking. At 210,000 I would change those seals too.

I'm going to guess that the dealer's "inspection of the water pump" ALWAYS results in a recommendation to replace the pump. That way they can offer a lower price going in but the price goes up for the extra work. Typical bait and switch salesmanship.

Tell them to give you the price with tensioner and water pump, because they should be changed at the same time. How much? If the "rear" seal is leaking, doing the timing belt job isn't going to help because it's in the "front". You have to remove the transmission (other end of the engine) to change the rear seal. $350 for parts and I did my own timing belt in the driveway. You should do the coolant at the same time, plus the valve adjustments if you really want to go all out. You could probably put off doing the spark plugs, if funds are low, as long as you aren't getting misfires, and the engine runs good.

Why not? If I remember correctly they are also due at around 100,000 mikes and let them do the work because the rear three are not easy to replace because of their location.

I was merely answering this question:

"I've been told to just replace all at once. Do you recommend this?"

all the TB stuff (belt/tensioner,water pump) I agree with but the spark plugs are so simple they can be done any time by anyone. I'd definitely recommend not doing it since the package is being offered up by the stealership.

What is the dealer quoting for each individually (the timing belt and the spark plugs)? My local dealer always has a coupon to replace the timing belt and water pump for $599.

...and what about tensioner, idler? Don't get a timing belt job without all the key components.
