The job would be pretty much like a timing belt change. Labor will depend on where you live; but, I try to give what I feel is a rough estimate.

1. (OEM Honda Parts and dealer labor) - Timing belt change (adding water pump); but, no auto-tensioner replacement. Using the taper shim kit (which includes timing belt, taper shim, and drive pulley).

Taper shim kit (retail) $157
Water pump $140
Labor: 3 hours at $130/hour (dealer - varies depending on area) = $390
Total = Approximately $687 plus tax, assuming dealer does not mark up over list, which many do.

2. (OEM Honda Parts and independent labor) - only change is labor at $86/hour.

$157 + $140 + $258 (3 hours at $86) = $555 plus tax.

3. (Discounted OEM Honda Parts and independent labor) - taper shim kit $117 + water pump $103 + shipping $55 + labor at $86/hr (3 hours) = $533. Shipping will usually be less; but, I am not sure where you might be, Hawaii? Lol.

4. Non-Honda parts and no water pump change would be less. Water pump not always necessary; but, probably should change it at time of timing belt change to avoid duplicate labor to remove timing belt, etc. if water pump failed in near future.

5. Some dealer will negotiate to get the job and check for internet coupons for services at your local dealer. Labor rates can vary if you know someone at independents.

Update. So the sound is still there. It actually does speed up when reving the engine. Here is something I noticed, when shifting from d to r or r to d, the sound stops for a second than comes back. Does something in the engine disengage when shifting? I have auto trans. Sound does not go away in any gear or in n. Just when shifting from gears to gears.

When the transmission shifts gears, the load on the engine is removed during the shift.

One thing you can try is to warm up the engine, so the noise is present. Shut off the engine and remove the serpentine belt. Try starting up the car. Is the sound still present? This would help eliminate anything driven by the outer belt.

You don't want to run off of the battery for too long, because you will drain it.

I would definitely try this first. It sounds a lot like a drive belt rubbing on a timing cover to me. The 03 Accord doesn't seem to be included in the Service Bulletin. If the timing belt hasn't been changed on this car, it is past due though.

Anyone doing a timing belt on this car would probably want to check the clearance on the idler pulley, just to make sure. I would have liked to have this information when I changed mine a few months ago.

When I took the car in to Honda, they took off the serpentine belt and noise was still there. They used a stethoscope and said that noise I internal. But no discoloration when i drained the oil. Weird. They said it wasn't coming from the timing belt either. Under the car is where the sound I the loudest. Honda said they think it might be a bearing no lost in power though. Car runs good.
