    So lets see who can guess the closest to what it cost to do the following to my CRX

    Timing Belt
    Water Pump
    Valve cover gasket
    Alt. & A/C Belts changed
    Oil Change
    Valve Lash adjust if needed, going to check if any are out of spec

    Grand Total = ??

    Valve cover gasket-roughly $42
    Alt. & A/C Belts changed-about $35
    Oil Change-rougly $34
    Valve Lash adjust if needed, going to check if any are out of spec- feeler gauges about $4

    Grand Total =about $200

    It's being done by a shop, I just don't have the time to do it myself these days. and it's a 1.5ltr , dacheat you're pretty damn close.

    hehe my real guess is in the $600s but i wanted to be under by a bit so i could win :D

    ps: i should hope i'm close, i've gotten quotes for most of that before and opted to f@cking learn how to do it myself and cajole friends into helping me. if i remember right, getting the water pump done alone is $300 at a shop, and to do the timing is usually about $150 - so i figure if you're getting the rest done while you're doing the water pump...well yeah it's already all apart so...i'll be curious to see what the actual quote or damage is.

    Sounds like a 90,000 mile service. Most dealerships do that stuff, minus the belts, with the package. My guess, $650-$700
