It depends on how many valves got bent when the problem happened!!

If there's no serious damage, the cost is mostly labor. A new belt is pretty reasonable, but in most vehicles it's a pain to take off all the stuff that is in the way.

I'd ask for an estimate based on the flat rate manual. It won't be cheap but at least you have an idea.

Labor on your car is listed in Chilton’s labor guide as 5.8 hours for the repair in labor. Depending upon the shops labor rate and what guide they go off this would vary form a few bucks to a few hundred. My shop would charge 406 for labor. The belt can run from around 30 if you bought it and up to 150 from some shops that mark up that much. I have replaced several on theses that have chunked while running and had no damage to the valves. But it can happen. Since it wasn’t running. There shouldn’t be damage. But I have learned over the years with cars that you can expect about anything……troy

You can fix it for the price of a belt and a manual.

don't be hatin'

Is typing what happened that difficult for you to do? Did you hear a bang so you shut the car off? We don't read minds. If you explain what happened you might find out that it wasn't the timing belt.
