    you're not sure if they have been replaced- to be safe as not to cause a road hazard when your vehicle stalls and to avoid inconvenience, i personally would recommend replacement and record the mileage and date of replacement
    2. pag magpapalit ako ng timing belt , dapat ba kasama na ung idler pulley, tensioner at timing belt, ung water pump ba kasama pa?
    these components have the same mileage as the timing belt itself and are designed to last just as long. to save time of reopening it for maybe just an idler pulley, these parts are MAW (might as well) to include all oil seals that maybe exposed when the timing belt cover has been removed
    3. kung bibili ako ng timing belt pwede ba ung replacement brand lang? o dapat original? mahal din kasi ang presyo...
    most aftermarket parts are just as good as the OEM (original equipment manufacturer). in fact, most only change the box and same contents
    4. kung papalitan ko na, sa casa ko ba papagawa? o sa mekaniko sa labas, saan recommendado nyo na marunung at magaling sa chevy cars? tga las pinas ako..
    just find a trusted, trained, experienced and equipped technician, this is not rocket science, it is just a timing belt replacement
    5. magkano ba inaabot ng pagpalit nito based sa experience nyo....
    sorry, don't know the going rate of labor per hour at your locality

    - kung hindi makita sa records ng casa yung last time na nagpalit ng timing belt, i would suggest na palitan mo na sya for your peace of mind. mas malaki magagastos mo kapag naputulan ka nyan.

    2. pag magpapalit ako ng timing belt , dapat ba kasama na ung idler pulley, tensioner at timing belt, ung water pump ba kasama pa?

    - mas maganda kung isabay mo na lahat ng yan para isang gawaaan lang at isang beses lang bayad ng labor

    3. kung bibili ako ng timing belt pwede ba ung replacement brand lang? o dapat original? mahal din kasi ang presyo...

    - mahal talaga ang oem pero sigurado ka naman sa quality nya. pero pwede din ang replacement (replacement lang gamit ko) kaya lang kung ang oem e good for 80,000kms bago palitan kapag naka replacement ka, 40,000kms pa lang, palitan mo na para sigurado

    4. kung papalitan ko na, sa casa ko ba papagawa? o sa mekaniko sa labas, saan recommendado nyo na marunung at magaling sa chevy cars? tga las pinas ako..

    - no comment

    5. magkano ba inaabot ng pagpalit nito based sa experience nyo....

    - depende kung magkano price ng parts at labor

    Usually kasi 70k-80k kms ang palitan ng timing belt per user manual. I suggest palitan mo na rin since "casa-maintained" yang kotse mo at since wala kang makitang service record kung kailan sya nagpalit.

    Kung ako kasi, isasabay sabay ko na lahat yan para isang gawaan at isang labor lang.

    I've used both OEM and replacement timing belts depende sa kotse. Wala namang masama sa replacement basta tama ang pagkakabit. Make sure lang na palitan mo nang mas maaga

    Sa suking talyer mo ipagawa. Pede rin sa Prens Alabang (tapat ng Toyota Alabang), Prens Sucat, MoTech (in front of Makro Sucat) or any Shell stations (sa may BF tapat ng Southville or sa may tapat ng Perpetual)

    Sa casa around P12k-P15k lahat nung nabanggit mo sa #2. Sa suking talyer depende sa parts.
