    Hi Guys,

    Need your kind advise on reputable workshop for timing belt and spark plug change for pv6, and of course with acceptable charges. Currently I am clueless on where to go, i've search around and got quoted different amount of labour and parts price:

    1 workshop in S.Alam quoted: MYR 880 for timing belt and water pump include labour
    Item: (MMC belt with all seals and bearings) (GMB Waterpump)
    Duration: (will take 4-5 Hours)

    1 workshop in bangi quoted: MYR 690 for timing belt change with waterpump and labour
    Item: (MMC belt with all seals and bearings) (GMBWaterpump)
    Duration:(will take almost whole day to complete the job)

    Im not sure why the prices varies that much, and as for the spark plug change, quoted MYR 100 for labour and MYR 270 for 6 plugs of denso iridium ik20.

    I need your opinion on this price quoted and the parts listed, is there any other brand of timing belt to consider to? like dayco or gates? and water pump is GMB or Aisin?

    Your advise is very much appreciated guys!

    hello Danz,

    wanna ask.

    for V6, we only need to change the timing belt?
    is there anything else that need to change?

    while u at it I suggest to change water pump, spark plugs & plug cable, at least u save on workmanship. to change water pump alone will costs u the same for changing timing belt, same goes for the plugs & cables.

    ---------- Post added at 11:56 AM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 11:55 AM ----------

    duration will be from 6-8 hrs depending how busy is your mechanic.
    my previous workshop did a very good job on my engine, but sadly I made him bankrupt & closed shop because he took my car for a ride & had an accident.

    I advice find a workshop close to your home at least its convenient.

    noted on water pump.
    spark plug, i'm on iridium.
    is there a need to change plug cable? i thought if it aren't spoil, don't bother.

    what about fan belt? is there a need?
    V6, run how many belt in total?

    my savvy runs on 3 belt, engine, aircon, radiator if i got it correctly

    Hi you guys have any idea how much it costs to do top overhaul and full overhaul?
    A brand new v6 engine I heard was rm4,000.

    it depends on the brand of the top/full overhaul set,
    top set from japan bout rm160++
    full set from japan rm250++
    during the process u might replace wear & tear parts therefore budget less than rm700 for top overhaul & less than rm2k for full overhaul
    that is an estimate price.

    workmanship depending on mechanic

    The V6 is a pain in the a** even just to change the plugs. So many things to remove, so is better you change whatever you need to. As for plug cables not too sure, better bro. Danz comment on this.
    Some car have different belts to run air con, alternator and so on and some just one belt runs all. If have not change before might as well change now since opening up

    Other then those mentioned by bro. Danz, I think you need to change the internal oil seals too. Tensioner and bearings if have?

    ---------- Post added at 10:01 AM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 09:58 AM ----------

    Usually if your pistons and rings are still in good condition they will do a top overhaul. Remove only the header de-carbonize, grind the valves, clean up and put back.
    If need to change pistons and/or rings then is full overhaul

    pv6 got 2-3 belts, cant remember, aircond, alternator & power steering.
    yes overhaul there are 2 types, those emitting white smoke from exhaust can just change the oil seals & gasket known as top overhaul, meaning only open the engine head.

    full overhaul will dismantle your whole engine leaving the engine block inside, some mechanics will take it out too. I did a full rebuild on my engine the last time it was worth it at least engine can lasts another 10 years.

    if u ask me of course full overhaul will be better if u have the funds, if not top overhaul will just do fine.

    ---------- Post added at 10:20 AM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 10:18 AM ----------

    yes unker u are correct, it could costs up to rm360 for workmanship alone to change those plugs, so must as well change at one go, plugs & cables.

    timing belt set will include 1x timing belt, 5 oil seals & 2 tensioner bearings.
