I've replaced the timing belt twice on my '89 240 wagon... the belt was
around $15-20 at an autoparts store (AutoZone, I think), and the job took me
maybe 2 hours, working slowly. Easiest timing belt I've ever replaced on any
of my previous cars!

Couple hundred bucks at most, or you can do it yourself for about $30 if
you've got the time and some standard tools.
Check the water pump too, if there's any play in the shaft have it replaced
while they're in there.
