I'm around the 88k mile marker and need to get my timing belt changed...

The Honda dealership around here quoted me at $750 for timing belt, all accessory belts (power steering, ac, etc.) and engine flush I believe.

What does it normally cost for this to happen, I know that dealerships always charge way over the top... but I know the mechanics there and I trust them, but if it's too over the top I'll take it elsewhere.
fuck $750... take a look at this thread

with a timing belt you dont want to wait till it breaks, and if you're taking off the valve cover to inspect, you might as well set aside the extra couple of hours and do the job. I had the Tbelt done before for $350. It is something you'll HAVE to do sooner or later, might as well get it done now then be really sorry later. I snapped my belt at 75k bent 8 valves... dont be like me.

A good guide for the B18C, pretty similar procedure

There is also a write up on prelude online, you gotta pay $6 for membership and it is well worth it.

i'm just saying if you're at 75k and its fine, dont bother replacing it, and if ur at 50k and its worn, replace it... its not the numbers that matter its the condition of the belt...

and yes, while you're doing it its a perfect excuse to spend an afternoon doing a full tune up on your car... you wont be disappointed
