First time on this forum...

I have a 1998 Holden Jackaroo Petrol 3.5 Ltr, has done around 150,000 K's, any idea when the timing belt should be replaced as I keep getting conflicting comments from the many Holden Dealers.

As any body had one replaced and can give me an idea on the cost and when it was done?

Any info would help..

Many thanks..

Don't know about Jac's specifically, but general rule seems to be every 100K.

Well the dealers must be dingbats as the owners book & service guide say every 160,000k, the older 3.2 was at 100,000k, Big Job, about 6 hours continuous labour, and about $ 500 in parts. Good tip is to change the tensioner as well as they lose pressure over time and check the internal water pump as well for any signs of leakage, as its a good time to change that if needed. Also check the valve clearances while its all open.

Hi Guys,

Hey thanks for the very quick response (World Record)

Just the news I did not want to hear.

Not too worry, better get out the Credit Card.

Thanks also for the tips on the Tensioner and Valve Clearances.
