Parts vary from dealer @ $400 to junk yard @ $50
labor rate = 1/2

therefore you will pay 1/2 what ever the garage charges per hour PLUS the cost of the part

however, the garage "charge" for the part is generally twice the cost of what you pay

this is because when the "new" part fails they have to install it for free if under warranty

if you buy the part yourself... expect to pay no more than one hour service time usually less than $100

The computer is what supplies current to the injectors and that flow of current is regulated by a crank or cam sensor. Have the engine trouble codes on the vehicle read, to know for sure what's gone bad.

I have a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder, I had to take off the timing belt to replace the water pump, my vehicle runs but rough how do I get my timing back?

If it ran fine before and you did not move the distributor (if it has one), then you must not have gotten the timing marks aligned properly on the crank and cam pulleys. If that is the case, unfortunately you will have to take the timing cover back off and get the belt installed with the pulleys in the correct positions. This link provides information on what the marks look like and why this is the only way to fix your problem.
