With that price i would have to see what he is actually changing, The tensioners are spring loaded and really do not require changing. The cam tensioner shoes wears and the slack guide wears. The other guides will have very little wear on them but highly recommended to change them while your in there.

IMO

hes changing the slack guide and tensioner only which is the real cause of the rattle ( $120.00 )

Click the image to open in full size.

The slack guide plastic clips breaks and moves the plastic portion of it to the crank spocket. When the car is started the plastic slaps against the crank sprocket sort of like when we were kids when we use to put a clip on the back spockets of our pedal bikes.

Click the image to open in full size.

I have applied high temp and oil resistance rtv to the back side of this guide. If the clip breaks again the rtv will hold it in place.

Honestly if i was doing this job for someone i would advise that they buy all the parts needed for a full timing chain replacement. After inspection if it looks like the cam shoes are good then i would just advise on changing the slack guide and tensioner. Then that person can return the other $400.00 in parts that is required for a full timing job. Theres no way in bloody hell this guy is giving you a full timing job for that price unless he likes working on cars for free as a hobby

I just called him and he is saying that he is doing full timing job. He gets all parts at his price. And if I bring all parts, he charges $450 for just labor. Its a killer deal
