Has anyone an idea as to the cost involved in replacing the timing belt and platinum plugs at the 10000km mark for a 1998 NL pajero

Hi Shane,

I think you mean 100 000 km and yes it is quite expensive. You can expect a shocking price of around $700.00 to $900.00 depending on extra's.

If you want to try it yourself I can email you a strip sheet.

If its a 3.5 dont take risks as there is no clearance if the belt breaks and the damage bill is usually good. 3.0 has clearance.

Shane,

I tried replacing the plugs myself on my 96 Paj, couldn't get the last two in so went to the mechanic (not a dealer) and was shocked when told the timing belt damage that can happen if I didn't replace the belt as well. Still cost me best part of 500 bucks even though I had already bought the Platinum plugs, which are about 30 bucks each as well. All up $650-$700.
If you don't intend on keeping the car, I wouldn't do it. I ended up with 150 000km on mine before I bit the bullet. In that time there was no side effects from not doing it at 100 000km.

Cheers Trevor.

Thats lovely! what about the next poor b****** that buys the car and has the belt break on him. Just because you got 150,000k does not mean everyone will. The type of use and enviromental conditions have a big bearing on the life of the belt that is why the manufacturer is conservative about the change period. I have seen a belt fail at 110.000k. In the mining industry some operators replace Toyota cam belts at 60.000k.

PS there is no side effects , they just break suddenly and destroy the top end of the ehgine.

Ken,

The belt was changed while I still owned the car, so then "next poor b.....ger" got a car that had the belt changed at 150000km while the car had only done 170000km.... not bad if you ask me.
But as they say, that's the risk you take when buying second hand.

Cheers Trevor.

Had wifes done recently, about $800. (included idler bearings, which if one goes will take belt with it)

You'd be foolish not to do it if keeping car. Also worth doing water pump whilst in there if remotely suspect, as its the same strip almost to get to it.

It cost me around the $1000 mark which included a new water pump and a few other minor matters.
