So I noticed today a loud whining sound coming from my timing belt I assume. I have a 2004 wrx with 82000 miles. I heard they needed to be replaced at 105k miles. But nonetheless, I'm assuming I need to replace the timing belt. So I had a few questions that hopefully someone can help me with.
1)Generally speaking, how much labor/time does it take to replace it?
2)Is it something I could do myself?
3)Probably most importantly, how much time can I still use my car before the belt breaks? I ask this cause I don't have the funds to fix it and me and wife share the car. I certainly don't want to push the car to the brink but at this point my options are limited.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
