Re: 94 100 timing belt

Wow, I don't know where you got your manual, but most don't say anything
about the timing belt.  Anyway, the V6 will definitely chew itself to
bits if the timing belt breaks, so I would go ahead and do it.  While
you're in there get the water pump and tensioners.
Expect to pay around $600-$800.
