Its about 111,000 miles on my 2003 Outlander 2.4L 4 cylinder engine.
I dont know if they belt has ever been replaced. I'm going to do it now. However, I want to try and get it done right for the right price.
I'm going to get the belts replaced and the water pump. But I'm wondering if it would be better to get all the parts necessary and then pay a shop to do the labor. Here are the parts i was thinking of getting
People say to use the manufacturer parts, but is it really necessary?
If I was to use the parts at the repair place, would it be better just use what they have? How much should it cost in Illinois to have all of this done without getting the parts? How much should it cost of i got the parts online and the labor done at a shop?
I want my car to last to at least 200,000 miles. I know thats asking a lot, but I wana try. Shes been real good to me so far.
thanks for the info guys!
