Water pump $$$$$

Thanks everyone...I'm getting my timing belt changed on the 92 Camry soon and told them to do the water pump at the same time...A-ok but wow he quoted me "about 365.00" as the water pump is 150.00!!! Does that sound right? Plus my AC is out and who knows what that will be....
I'm in dollar shock over the water pump....

That sounds about right to me ($150 for parts and labor for the water pump?) or is it $365 for water pump replacement and more for the timing belt?

RE: Water pump $$$$$

Reekola ... yea he quoted "ABOUT" $365 for timing belt & pump. Don't know that much about the inner workings of the car so I'm glad it sounds about right to someone.

RE: Water pump $$$$$

Chevrolet and Ford will survive the Toyota onslaught as long as they can keep their repair costs about one half's of Toyota and Honda...
$365 for a good 2 to 3 hours labor including $100 or so in parts.. sounds almost fair to me.. but I should have stayed in this field...

RE: Water pump $$$$$

Just paid to have a water pump put in my car. The pump alone was $100...and that's for a chevy with a 350 v-8. Couldn't be more than 100 million of those out there. I'm afraid the days of the $15 + exchange water pumps are over.
