recently i want to change the timing belt for my 95 Camry V6

it's about 112K miles and around the timing belt oil starts leaking a lil bit here and there so they (autoshop) said that i need to replace a lot of stuffs on my car... the estimate is about $750 (+labor)

is that too expensive?
where can i order timing belt parts online for my car? any recommendation is greatly appreciated and thank you in advace!!

BTW im a newbie in this forum :p:

for parts like that, it's usually best to stick with oem....

and what did your mech say that you needed anyway? seals are going on you or what?

$750 is pretty steap. It sounds to me like you need to have your valve cover gasket replaced (common). You can do this yourself with the help of a haynes manual (or almost any automotive manual for your car). The valve cover gasket runs about $50-$119 (i4-v6) bucks. If you have a cracked valve cover then you can buy a new oem one cheaper than any shop will quote you. Timing belts run about $29.99 and you can get them from any kragen or local parts store.

edit: getting multiple quotes never hurts.

Original Equipment Manufacturer. In this case, Toyota. Or whoever they got the part from, and rebadged it as Toyota.

You'll need a timing belt tensioner too...

stick with toyota parts... especially since the price difference in the parts cost is nothing compared to the extra labor of doing it twice.:hammer:
