A bit Pricey?
A young friend has a 97 Jeep, the water pump started leaking, he took it to a Firestone Place for an estimate,they quoted him $600 to install a rebuilt pump. He ask my advice I told him it sounded a bit high to me. I am a bit of tinkerer and and have some knowledge of autos. Marcel who once owned a garage says the quote was too high. Anyway we offered to help him replace the pump. He was able to purchase a new pump not rebuilt for $104 off the internet. We installed it yesterday took 3hrs I,m sure a pro with a lift and all the proper tools could have done the installation in less time. Now I realize that repair places have overhead such as insurance, health coverage for employees, etc but $600 for such a job seems way ouy of line to me.
