      timing belt replacement

      I was wondering if the same steps that are used in changing the timing belt on the 2006 aveo can be used while changing the timing belt on an 2008?

      The engines are virtually identical. Probably some very minor differences.

      alright thank you very much for the info. I got the wife a aveo from a used car lot and the salesman did not have any info on when or if the timing belt had ever been changed. So Im just going to go ahead and change it. I found a water pump, gasket, timing belt, and pulley on ebay for $161.00, (ill add an link) so im thinking on ordering it. I also got a new air filter, serp. belt, serp. belt tensioner assembly, plugs and wires, and a ignition coil pack to put on..... Is there any secrets or tricks that youre aware of for installing these items? thanks alot this fourm has been an major help.

      here is the link to the ebay item i am thinking of purchasing if anyone has any info or thoughts on it it would be very apreciated. i do not want to put anything on the car that might not work well. thank you GATES TCKWP335 Chevy Aveo Wave Swift 1.6L L4 Timing Belt Kit w/Water Pump Set | eBay

      The beauty of ebay is that you can practically get anything you want with in any price range.

      Don't waste your money on ebay parts. I just completed my timing belt this past week. I purchased that exact kit from RockAuto.com and only spent $115 shipped to my door. Why spend more for the same parts? It's always good to shop around.
