My mechanic said I need to change the timing belt. He recommended to get the timing belt kit (including water pump). What are your thoughts? Do you think a kit is necessary? It's for a 02 Xterra with 140k miles

If you are not planning on keeping it any length of time you could probably skip them, but every time I have changed a TB I have also gone ahead and done the water pump and tensioners while I ma in there. If they are ever needed in the future you will tear off about 90% of what you have to do for just the TB.

Sold

Perfect! I'm sold! Thank you gentlemen. Yes, you're right, you would have to tear off 90%. The other components need replacement either way/eventually. T.B. Kit it is.
