Default This sux!

A friend of mine from the St Louis honda club was trying to replace my timing belt on my 94 EX. He encountered a very tight bolt and could not get it out. Im pretty bummed now since i have to pay labor costs out theBUTT* He did fix my drivers side driveshaft however.

let me guess the crankshaft bolt wouldn't come off? VERY common issue and quite a few posts on here about that... sorry to hear you're going to pay a ton of labor but in the future let us know, there is a full write-up in the DIY section and tons of info on how to get that bolt off yourself....

thats exactly what it was. Looks like the timing belt/water pump, balance belt, left axle shaft and the right wheel bearing will cost me $550 labor. I bought all the parts for about $200.

Is it to late to tackle the job yourself? already got it in the shop? If so then it would be really upsetting to realize that you could have done all of that yourself... pay someone $20.00 to break that bolt loose then it's all on you and save $530.00

For future referance, take the car to a shop and ask them to pop that bolt off then re-tighten it enough to hold it together and then you can do it yourself....

Same here... This was the exact same problem I have. Now I have to pay 550 to get it fix but also Extra $60 buck so they can find out that 1 ground wire was loose from the ECU to make the car run again. Not sure this is BS to get more money or what....
