    Anyone in the St. Petersburg, Florida area know a bit about DSM’s? Or close by? I need to do a timing belt on my car. I know I can do it but it gives me nightmares honestly. Lmk! Thanks

    If I lived closer to you I would definitely help you. If you are that worried that something might go wrong then I would just take it to a mechanic shop. I don't think that it's that bad replacing the timing belt and components. If you have the tools, time and knowledge I would just go for it.

    First time is often scary but it's much easier than it seems up front.
    Afterward you wonder what you were all wound up about. That said having someone to look over your shoulder is a great idea. Maybe this will have more responses moved to the regional forum...

    I live not far from you actually: I'm pretty sure I've seen your car in your driveway. Off 16th street? I'm super busy for the next week or two, but I could likely help you after. PM me.

    Yes I’m off 16th. I probably won’t be doing it for another couple weeks so sounds good.

    I was in Fort Myers last week but saturated helping Mom switch internet providers and such. Way too humid for me, thank goodness for the pool.
