It is time to replace the timing belt on my 2008 Acura TL.

Asked by Oct 10, 2014 at 02:43 PM about the 2008 Acura TL Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It has 106,000 miles on it. The place I called is saying that they recommend I replace the water pump and drive belt at the same time. Am I getting scammed on this? They have not even looked at it yet. This would double the repair cost !

With that many miles, replacing the water pump is the thing to do. Labor is most of the cost if the pump went out later-- it's inside the timing cover. No you are not getting scammed--except it should not double. A timing belt/water pump kit is under $200 at http://www.1aauto.com/timing-belt-kit-with-water-pump-gates-tckwp329/i/gaeek00013?f=481787&y=2008&utm_campaign=gb_csv_br&utm_content=EEK&gclid=CM-X1YnjosECFcNhfgodBWIAsA add labor.. ...which should give you a clue why they sell it as a kit
