TOTAL COST ABOUT $ 1500.00.I am retiree & can't afford. What is priority considering safety? What can I do for other inspection? I have to borrow to get it repair.

As far as the timing belt goes it says to replace it at 60,000 miles if the vechile is regulary operated in extreme temps above 110 degrees or below 20 degrees. The timing belt is a maintance item also they recommend replacing the water pump because its driven off the water pump. That engine is whats called a interfernce fit so if the timing belt breaks valve damage can happen. As far as the hose clamp kit and vtec spool valve filter why did they say you have to replace those items?
