Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Alero
Should it cost a grand to replace the timing chain and the 3 plastic guides on a 4 cylinder 2001 alero. Or 9.5 hours of work.. Thanks
$1000 is appropriate at a chain garage or dealership as long as it carrys a warrenty. with the economy the way it is if you want to save money you can hire a mechanic to do it as sidework but you are taking your chances on how quick he will do it and you have to make sure he knows what he is doing. if you need the car done quickly and are not a good judge of character shell out the $1000. If you can spot someone bull"s"ing and have a little more time offer a mechanic $500. Sometimes you can drive up to a shop and bypass the office and ask the mechanic directly if he does sidework. Most will love the oppertunity because they are paid nowhere near what you pay for the service.
