The average cost for replacing a timing belt depends on the make and model of the vehicle. According to CostHelper.com, the cost for passenger cars varies between $179 to $942, with an average cost of $449. A timing belt for an SUV or minivan costs between $502 to $950, with an average of $736.
A timing belt is normally replaced every 50,000 to 100,000 miles, but replacement intervals vary between car manufacturers. Check the owner's manual or an online maintenance schedule for replacement interval rates for a specific vehicle.
Tips for replacing a timing belt include ensuring timing marks are properly aligned and checking to make certain belt tension has been correctly adjusted. Assembling all necessary tools and ensuring the engine is in good working condition should also be done before replacing a broken belt.
People live in the tundra, but large population oscillations often occur because of the extreme cold. According to the Arctic Human Development Report, about 4 million people live in the arctic areas.
The tundra is located along the extreme northern edge of Asia, Europe and North America. The majority of the world's tundra forms a single unbroken belt along the northern reaches of the globe, but isolated patches can be found in the Southern Hemisphere.
One of the biggest threats to the tundra is global warming. As fossil fuels burn elsewhere on the planet, the atmosphere warms in all locations. This causes melting of permafrost, resulting in the collapse of tundra ecosystems. As permafrost melts, it allows frozen plant material to decay, releasing
In order to replace the timing belt on a car the coolant needs to be drained, timing belt covers, alternator pulley, crankshaft pulley, valve cover and old belt all have to be removed. After that, the timing belt will need to be properly adjusted and timed so the engine does not become damaged.
To replace the car's timing belt, degrease the engine, drain the coolant, remove the old belt, insert a new belt in the place of the old one, replace the crankshaft seal with a new one and refill the coolant. For proper replacement instructions, refer to the owner's manual.
Despite the freezing weather in the Arctic Circle, a vast number of plants thrive in the tundra biome, including different types of mosses, lichens, shrubs, flowers and other low-lying plants. These resilient plants have adapted to the tundra's short growing season and harsh environment.
The average cost to replace the timing belt ranges from $150 to $1,000, as of 2015. The range in price is based on the type of car and the cost of labor. This is a labor-intensive job that may take as many as eight hours.
