I have a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder. How often do I need to replace the timing belt, and about how much should it cost for parts and labor?

1994 and later went to 100,000-mile changes. Not sure if and when it changed after that. Check your owner's manual under "Regular Maintenance" or "Scheduled Maintenance," but it should be at least 100,000 miles.
Parts and labor at a Nissan dealer for my '93 was around $600. Read the previous posts in this thread for details and suggestions. Yours may be different since there were updates.

"After that" is 2001 and later uses a steel "lifetime" belt in the VQ engine. If the engine is being rebuilt the belt should be changed along with the tensioner and possibly the guides and sprockets.
Before 2001 the belt is rubber and has to be changed -before- it breaks - change it at suggested intervals so it doesn't break.
