Garage terminology. Wtf... [new timing belt]

Ok so im reading this reciept when I got my timing belt done and this is what they said they did. I just want to know your input cause i dont want to be done up my browneye.

1. timing belt tensioner assembly [parts]
2. timing belt kit assy idler pullys [part]
3. water pump assembly [part]
4. valve cover gasket [part]
5. Timing belt tensioner assembly [part]
6. coolant [part
7. labor to remove front engine cover and install new timing belts and tensioner and idler assembly [labor]

all this came out to $1,130.76

ok idc about the price, but what i want to know that with all those tensioner and **** talk, does that include my accessory belt? instead of them calling it a serpentine belt did they call it a tensioner/idler? cause i open my hood and this is what i found




I mean i know its an accessory belt but is it also called a tensioner belt? does the above claims of the garage claim to have replaced it?

and another thing. i mentioned above about my timing belt replacement... i get this whurring sound comming from my timing belt when i reach 2.5 rpms. is that normal?


ohh and he tells me i got 2 timing belts.. is this a true story?

They should have replaced both those acc belts for the amounts they charged you!

The whriling is normal if they did a manual conversion, but i think the auto shouldn't make that noise.

1. They should have changed the two accessory belts as well, especially for that price.

2. Yes, there are two timing belts, one timing belt, and one balance shaft belt actually.

3. Noise is not completely normal, but does happen sometimes until the belt wears in a little bit.

4. If leaving that belt on is the type of work they do I would look for a new shop. They had to take that belt off to get the covers off. It would only be another $15 or so to replace that belt as well. Should have been done while it was off.

BTW Didn't you just post that your belt broke and you bent valves? What happened with that? Did you ever get a head for it?

im sorry man they boned your poop chute pretty hard. that should of been about 400-500 dollars to do.

i take it the first thing listed was the auto tensioner its self?

but yeah they should of replaced that belt or at least told you its worn and asked if you wanted a new one.
