Default Timing Belt Replacement F6a Engine 12 valve 660 cc

I have a Suzuki Multicab van on order, which I will pick-up in Cebu PH the week of Sept 5, 2011. I was told the vehical has 74k kilometers recorded.

I want to have the timing belt replaced and want to find a good mechanic in Cebu or the surrounding area to have this work done. From reading other posts, it appears I need to make sure they install a high quality belt (OEM, or name brand, etc).

Does anyone know what is the going rate for the belt replacement, and can anyone recommend a good shop in the Cebu area.


F6a-6264172, 3 cylinder, 12 valve, 660 cc.
Thank you, John

greetings! I went to Shell station near Marena Mall on Mactan Island.
They changed my belt, but it came from China as usual.
The one that was in it was marked Thailand, they said it was original, and still good, no wear. I still have it as a backup.
I will post picture of original belt, magnify it to read part number. 113MY25 12761-86000 for Suzuki.
Good luck

By the way, check type of fuel filter, and distributor cap that is installed while it is up on the lift, and also spark plugs because many different types are installed, take with you to your home, it will save time and trouble later.

Thank you Newsavedone,

I did receive a quote from the shop putting the van together; P1,450 parts and labor to install the timing belt. They indicate it's a Gates belt, which is a brand I'm familiar with and trust. They indicate they cannot get the OEM Suzuki part, I'm ok with Gates. I haven't purchased the repair manual for this engine yet, but based on the quote it's most likely a fairly easy installation?

As far are the fuel filter and tune-up items, what should I be looking for on these to determine if they are reliable parts? If it comes down to the manufacture brand as an indication of quality, I will have the shop doing the timing belt replacement just replace at the same time.

Thank you very much for the picture and advice.
John

Save your money on the manual, they are all just references, nothing similar to a Chilton's is available on these vehicles. Look thru this forum, many references to free manuals, you get what you pay for as the saying goes. But even the costly ones of these things are just crappy. Wiring diagrams are useful sometimes if you got a tester. Don't let anyone Tweek your ECM module . It cant be reset.
As for parts, it comes down to whatever is available in store, or junk shop at the time of service.
Again, it is a work vehicle, not a hot rod, go for reliability, and fuel economy.
Good luck. KEEP ALL OLD PARTS FOR REFERENCE!!

first thing when you have your zuk multicab.. try to have the dealer open the plastic covering the timing belt and inspect it. its an easy job to open the cover. inspect it by yourself so that you can save time and money.. in getting a surplus unit, please always put in mind that it never comes with the exact gauge in the dashboard. as what i have experience, when multicabs are shipped in the philippines its never intact. it is cut like into several times, chassis, head and when they assemble it back its not going to the same chassis or head. try to check also when you pick up your multicab, have it checked if the oil is clear... hope this helps...
