You can get two different qualities of belt. The spendie one is very good and you won't have to worry about another belt for 10 years. The cheaper one is fine, and can last 40 to 60,000 miles. I always buy the cheaper one. That price with a mechanic to put it on should cost about 60 to 70 dollars.

probably 30 for belt 30 to put on. you might as well do it rite and have belt tensioner replaced since belt is off anyway. a tensioner will be a bit more costly but well worth it. its not a hard project. there is a belt diagram rite there. i would say save a ton and try it yourself. this job with tensioner shouldnt take more than a half hour, even for a beginner

It depends on if you're paying someone or you know someone with tools and a little experience. I would charge you $25 and you buy the belt (between $20-50). Installed, again, where in the world are you: NYC or Lincoln, NE? Call around.

If it's the 4 cyl., $75-$90 should do it, installed with taxes and shop fees...if it's a V6, the engine mount must be removed (partially), and this will add a few bucks, probably about $120 installed.
