You mean coil springs assume.really depends on suspension strut type contain damper and spring in one unit which while not hard to remove the strut needs to be compressed once off vehicle then taken apart then reassembled.wishbone suspension is less involved but still care needs to be taken.rear springs can be far easier as when jacked up they pretty much fall may be cheaper to by some uprated springs and supply to garage.springs are not normaly expensive. $240 seems bit steep but for original spec from manufacturer can be more costly

I was told the PCM, coil pack and the catalytic converter in my 05 Escape was bad. I was quoted nearly $4k for the repair and the car is barely worth $6k? Any suggestions?

Without labor your looking at a couple
hundred on exhaust and a hundred for coil
The pcm --doesn't sound right

I'am going to look on NAPA and get back to you

47,880 miles, needs front ransmission mount $300 parts & labor also needs left outer tie rod end $240 parts & labor. Which is most important to repair first-- I have saved $200.Car still holding...

The tie rod end is more important of the 2 because of safety. But according to prices, I would shop around other shops. $300 sounds high for trans mount. Just for kicks, call a parts store and ask for outer tie rod and trans mount for '88 escort or you can even check online Advance, autozone both have good inline stores. I bet you'll find "your quoted shop" has very inflated prices.

Dealer quoted $1200 for replacing the water pump and timing belt. Saw that the water pump is less than $100, so is this price primarily for labor?

hi it does sound like it is, bearing in mind the belt is about $25, as you said water pump $100 plus 4.5 to 5 hours labour if that's $100 an hour..that works out to be $625, plus gasket, and coolant about $50 ish, so they are charging you allot more really than it should be, even if the labour is a higher rate, that still is over the top, i would shop around...hope this helps

I have a 2002 galant that needs a new heating coil. I was not too concerned about this where I was living. I have recently moved to a colder location and I would like to get the heater coil put in. Does...

Are you talking about heater core? My labor info for 3.0L galant says 5.8 hrs. So the cost depends on what the shop charges for labor? If a shop charges 100 bucks an hour, that is almost 600 bucks and that's labor. Parts are extra.

Had the exact same problem with my 240 wagon. There is a temperature sensor up near the manifold on the drivers side of the engine. This is not the temp sensor that feeds the dash gauge, but one that tells the engine control module whether you are starting hot or cold. Mine was cracked, so the engine computer would get a cold start signal even after the engine ran warm, and would flood. This can be a difficult problem to diagnose and an expensive one when mechanics start swapping parts. You cannot see this sensor, but you can feel it (when the block is cold, please) right under the exhaust manifiold. A replacement is about $80 plus labor. Even my very experienced Volvo mechanic overlooked it. But the car would start and run fine, then leave me stuck when I tried to restart it. After calling AAA for a tow, the temp sensor would reset, then the car would start normally. Cheers. The 240 is a great car - I ran mine up to 235,000 miles; now I have a 740 with the same engine.
