Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

Average costs I have a 2003 Olds Alero and my Engine light was on. I took it in to my local mechanic and he said it was the thermostat. He said it was an easy fix and I looked up the price of the part and the highest price I found was 19.99. I was shocked when I got my bill. What is the average cost of replacing a thermostat in an Alero?

The labor is most expensive part of this repair.
On the 3.4 L V6 engine, the labor should be about 1 1/2 hours times the shop labor rate.
If the 4 cylinder, then the labor is much higher due to the location of the thermostat.

My 2003 olds alero keeps over heating. I have had a major tune up, changed the thermostat and its still over heating. The water pump is working fine. What else can it be?


It could be that your heater core is blocked. I would suggest getting the cooling system flushed, and get a mechanic to see if there is blockage.
