You have -two- options .

(1) Contact a local Garage Door Installer who can possibly sell you a new motor , chain and roller bearing assemblies .You will need to know the door model or at minimum, the motor type & size(HP), size of door and number of door panels . These products will cost considerably more individually than when bought as a kit ! This guy can also sell You a new garage door kit !

(2) Go to a big box hardware store, Purchase a NEW Garage Door Kit all NEW Mechanical Products , NEW Track and install a new Garage Door Opener .

The new Kit will generally cost between $200.00 and $500.00 .

Installation costs can range from $199-$399.00 and well worth the price.

The problem incurred when trying to remodel or update the mechanical devices ,Depending on the Age and Type of Door Opener Kit, is that over Time, the products are replaced with NEW and Improved models & series of motors ,hardware etc ,which are not readily compatible with older or different models/types.

Too much - would cost probably double an entirely new opener,which you can typically get installed for about $250-500 range (for single or double car doors) for mid-range openers.
However, unless the opener is just plum wore out from at least 15-20+ years of use, usually about $100 tuneup and cleaning and llubrication and adjustment will keep it going for another 5-10 years or more. Most people do not EVER clean and llube (if applicable) the track/bar or lube the chain or clean and lube the gears and positioning switches inside, so they just get gummed up with lint and dust.
With cleaning every year or two (in a garage with LOTS of woodworking dust) my Clopay is still running fine at 31 years old, with no parts replacement ever except light bulbs, and the only "repair" being a tightening adjustment on the drive belt.
