Question about Cars & Trucks
So I am getting my water hose flushed and a chemical thru it to clean mold and mildew found from a blockage of leaves in it. I am getting my back brakes replaced(drums). And my belt does not fit so they are going to tinker with that for me to stop it from squelling all the time. The first price was 852 dollars. I told them I cant do that I only have 600 dollars of savings. I was going to just pay for the look and leave but he told me hold on and he could give me something called a fleet discount. This fleet discount dropped it 676. My boyfriend is arguing with me because he wants me to take it somewhere else .. he seems to thinks its a ripoff but id rather just let them do it they have excellent ratings with AAA and BBB. I walked out thinking that was an okay price 676 which was just a lil over what I had saved and I want it done. It's my boyfriends car but he's letting me use it and I'm paying for this. I don't understand why he is so frustrated. Am I being dumb or is he overreacting?
I would say it sounds a bit high. A radiator flush and fill, which I think is what you are talking about, should be about $100. If it is a normal brake job, I only see it costing about $75 for the rear only. And a belt replacement should only be about $20-30. Now I do understand this is a shop so they have overhead that will cause prices to be a bit higher, but this sounds a bit too high. It would be better to know the exact work being performed. Some places will take advantage of women as well as men who do not know much about vehicles.

get your brakes done at a local tire place and not the dealer. It sounds like you need a new mechanic. Got to cartalk.com as they have a list of good mechanics in your area.

As far as the price goes, the head gasket set at AutoZone is almost $300 which means you would obviously pay more than that at your mechnic shop. I will check on the central pivot axis and get back with you. Did he tell you a code number that is popping the Check Engine light off?

As far as the hose goes, try turning it so it pulls away from the pully, then tighten it. If you've done all that work, and you're still overheating, I would start to look at a blown head gasket. If your head gasket is blown, you will have a mucky substance, or coolant on your oil dipstick. If not, then the flow journals in the engine are severely clogged. If it ends up being flow journals, you will need to disassemble the engine and have it hot tanked.

Engine check light comes on - defect of a range of Sportages - manufacturer should repair it. Check the recalls on Kia Sportage. My vehicle had to get an entirely new engine. This is after the vehicle refused eventually to start.
