It really depends on who is doing the work and how fast they work, but just to take the belts apart and replace the timing belt inside your engine it takes anywhere from 2 to 4 hours. I recommend you get done professionally, if its not done right it could cause some major internal damage. Could cost anywhere from $100-$250 for just the labour. Good luck

A 1997 GXE uses a timing chain, not a belt. I should last the life of the car if you're not an abusive driver.

I have a 1997 Nissan Sentra GXE and my car has over 200,000 miles on it. I don't know why everyone went from using timing chains to belts on new cars, other than it is built in money for the dealers. The 60,000 mile scheduled maintainence can cost clost to $1000.00 depending on the make/model of vehicle.
