$270 to $350 having a garage to do this. You'll have to find a automotive repair shop.


Alternator? New about 150 bucks. New belt? About another 25. Time to change? About 10 minutes on a 99 V6. Got a friend who knows how to unbolt a couple of bolts on the top of the engine? Cook him a steak and save about 150 bucks on labor.
