It shows it pays 2.8 Hours to change that belt. Average labor rate $60 x 2.8 = $168.. Chrysler shows the timing belt lists out at $115.68, so youd bee looking around $283, + misc, coolant, etc.... Assuming they dont charge you an hour for draining and refilling coolant, or a/c. So total, around $300.00. It shouldnt be much more than that.

You mean one of the accessory belt or the timing chain?

Huh...there is NO WAY the most experienced can take out all that shit including the radiator and have it swapped and put back together in that time.

Its not that hard, if you have a fully equipped shop...providing you also have the chrysler engine tool service set & air tools-- theres not much covering the timing cover that you have to remove, just belts, the crankshaft pulley, and the alt/p/s idler pulley, it takes about 30 mins to remove the headlights and upper core support, drain the coolant, and pop the radiator out. You could even cheat and leave it in, just take the upper hose and fans off. Then, another 15-20 to remove belts, idlers, and crank pulley....it takes the most time to replace the belt and set the engine up, then its all back together. Ive done a few, and I can get them done in about 2.5 hours. Like I mentioned, some dealers and shops may charge extra time for draining/refilling coolant, as it takes about 30 minutes to refill + start her up and get a test drive in... Thats going right off Mitchell on demand estimating program too..

I would imagine it's going to be roughly the same, being that the 3.2 and 3.5 are very similar.

They call for the same belt. Its also the same setup. It would be the same as the 3.2l.

Maybe the 3.2...NOT the 2.7. Mechanics hours for that job is like 11 hours.

Checked my local dealership out of curiosity on price for replacing timing belt on my '01 3.5 and he said around $700 Canadian. Haven't shopped around yet so I don't know if that is good or bad. That's not including water pump and the other stuff that members have strongly suggested changing when doing this service.

I'll be doing a pre-emptive strike on mine soon too (3.5HO).
@220k(kms) it's more than due !!

Crappy Tire says $123 for the timing belt (after I convinced the kid that I didn't want the AC belt OR the PS/Alt belt, and that the timing belt would be under "engine" NOT "cooling system")

Water Pump is $105 re-man or $138 new (I'll pop for new). I don't have any issues with the water pump but, while I'm in there...

I'll check with UAP and NAPA but the parts cost is probably pretty close. I'll be doing the work myself.

Horse poop.

We did two timing belts on two 300Ms in about 4 hours. Half of that was eating doughnuts and drinking coffee. (You should have come to the fixin' meet.)

Radiator does NOT need to come out. To top it all off it was the first time I ever did one on a 3.5.

So there. That being said most dealer estimates for the complete job have been in the $800 range.
