Going with a Gates Timing Belt Kit is the easiest way to make sure you have everything you need to do the job correctly. These kits come with all Gates components, which are OE or better. This kit includes a Gates Water Pump.
This kit includes:
- 1 Timing Belt
- 1 Hydraulic Tensioner
- 4 Idler Pulleys
- 1 Water Pump w/ gaskets
- 1 Thermostat Gasket
I was on the fence and I bought this kit and the AISIN kit I compared both kits side by side; tensioners/idlers/ all of the gears methodically compared. I measured the distance between the gears on both sets. I found them to be IDENTICAL the belt was great quality. I did have an initial issue with the water pump but it’s possible it could have been a manufacturer defect.
IIR was cool enough to replace it all.
