I have a high mileage 2.5 V6 that appears to have jumped time. The belt was extremely drenched with oil. Its obvious that I will need a seal or 2 when I replace the belt but I noticed that they sell a Timing belt kit that includes the timing belt, the idler and tensioner bearings (there are 3 of 'em). I have seen the belt for $35 but the kit runs $139. Are the parts in the kit prone to failure? I dont mean to be cheap but with the high miles I really didnt want to put too much into this unless its necessary. The car was givin to me in this condition and I'm not sure of its other faults(engine/tranny)

Thanks
Chris
