Anyone buy a complete kit for timing belt and water pump on eBay?

My 2007 Acura MDX is almost at 200K miles and the last time I got the timing and water pump service was at 100K. My mechanic said it's cheaper to buy the parts online versus the dealership. His after market kit is $200 but I'd prefer Honda parts.

Has anyone found a complete OEM kit for timing belt and water pump like this one on eBay for $260. I priced these out individually at several Acura OEM online stores and it was easily double the cost.

Also, what other parts should I consider replacing while this is being performed?

Me back in 2014 for my 2008 MDX. OEM parts kit. From a different seller, of course.

To your link - this seller only has 43 ppl rated him, I wouldn't rely on this seller. Plus, the cost is suspiciously low (I mean - come on - $260, really?). Seems too low.

The kit is complete.

Since you are removing the left side mount to install a new belt, might as well replace the mount (11 years, chances are it's shot). Mine looke mildly fading back in 2014, I'll definitely replace it during next timing belt change, as well as the rest of the mounts.

Also, if you are replacing the timing belt, that means code 4, which also means spark plugs and valve adjustment. While replacing the spark plugs, take a close look at the coils, they might need replacing as well.

Remember to double check proper timing is set before starting your engine after replacing the belt, otherwise you might tell your engine bye-bye.

Good luck!

Thanks AcuraAddicted. You're right about the seller rating and they are probably knock offs.

I found two other sellers with higher feedback but I can also look up your seller too.

Any reason you want the Honda parts? its not like Honda makes them and at best is the finish of the parts what changes at the expense of more money. The AISIN KIT is 180 bucks at Rock Auto and its 99% OEM Parts.

Thanks y'all. I'm open to after market and my mechanic said Dayco has been reliable when OEM wasn't available.

If going with aftermarket there is no other reasonable option but AISIN..

Go with Aisin. You can get it on Amazon.

In my research I found the majority of eBay kits were OEM belt and aftermarket everything else. I also don’t trust anything from eBay because eBay just doesn’t care. I had an issue with a counterfeit and they did absolutely nothing.


I also avoid Rockauto for the same reasons. Luckily my credit card refunded me that one.

I did an analysis and OEM from the dealer was about $200+ more but I also added the serpentine belt and thermostat - I bought it from the dealer but I also have a good relationship with the parts guy so I get a better discount than what OEM online site offer. Talk to your parts guy and see what they are willing to do.

Check out this post: https://www.mdxers.org/#/topics/162873

And here’s my invoice for the parts.

When I get to 200k I am using this kit myself.
Are you doing it yourself or buying the kit and having a mechanic shop do it.

You probably want to replace the serpentine belt and pulley and the check the cam seals.

I was told by the Acura lead mechanic to not touch the seals unless they are leaking or show signs of obvious wear. When you change the seals you introduce the possibility of a leak.

I'm having a mechanic do the work. Thanks for the heads up on the seals.

This is the kit I used for my last timing belt at 100K.

I'll be buying the same one when I hit 200K in a few months. I'm at 189K now.

I always buy my timing kits off eBay. Choose AISIN & KOYO parts. I have probably done five or six jobs this way - never a problem. I second the notion to forget about touching the camshaft seals - none i have come across were ever leaking or since.

I would add that it is cheap insurance to consider replacing the oil pump assembly and re-seal the oil pan whilst you are in there. Supporting the engine from the pan can be hard on the oilpan sealant and the oil pump is a famously popular place to develop a leak. These are pretty straightforward undertakings if the timing assembly is already off.

Cheers
