My car is leaking coolant, I think it is the water pump but everyone is trying to charge me like 700 hundred bucks to fix all these parts I dont think are broken... any ideas?
you need to find out where exactly is the leaks coming from, it can leak in many places beside the water pump. Im gonna let you in a little secrets of mine if you don't want to spend big bucks to fix it. Take it to local dodge garage and have them inspect it for 40 bucks instead of guessing and you cant seem to find where the leaks is and wasting paying someone big bucks to fix your car and it may not be the problems. Every dealership has a mechanic that does work on the side for extra money, I would ask around while you at repair shop and find out who does repair work on the side. you can prob can get done for 200-250 for the labor and you pay for the parts. that is half of what someone else is trying to make from you. 700 bucks is a shop rate profits for the dealer and the mechanic. never pay shop rate if it take 30 to 45 minute to install. you can also advertise and look on craig list for mechanic, with this tough economy time, you wont have a problem getting your car work done for nothing. I hope that help some...good luck!
