Hi. Just got back from the dealership. I replaced timing belt and tension.
All took around 1 hour and half and cost 350$ with labor.
The mechanic that worked on my car said to me: '' But does this car worth all the investment you did on it'' .. That not surprise me cause people here look at cars in that age like they pile of junk. Most of Israeli wants only new cars even most of them can't buy one so they lease them and replace them after 3 years.

It's worth the money if it's worth it to you. Every dollar I have spent is worth it. Some people take into account the resale value versus the money put in and don't think it's worth it. I have explained many times to people that I don't care what the resale value is on either of my cars. I do not plan on selling them. Ever.

Same here!
People can think about the resale value about every little thing they changed in car... Sometimes its made me nuts. I also keep cars for years.

My current car is 3 different colors, burns some oil, has a leaky clutch slave cylinder, and no drivers door handle. Most people would think when I get my XD2 running that I would just junk my Cougar. No effing way, I'm already looking at how to rebuild it in the spring and bring it back to some form of glory once again!!
