Customer Question

I related your diagnosis to my Ford dealer 9where I have the car serviced/. They came back with an estimate of $1166, to include replace starter motor, clutch, slave cylinder, bearing,i disc, and, if found necessary, flywheel replacement.
Does this sound fair and do you have any other suggestions b/c I'd feel stupid if I paid for all that work and it didn't fix the problem.

Hello, that estimate sound about right for a dealer to replace the starter and clutch setup. It might be done a little cheaper at an independent garage. You can call around and get a quote, but they wont be factory parts, which is mainly why the estimate would be less.
