Welcome to JustAnswer, my name is XXXXX XXXXX X'm here to help get your problem solved. It really depends on how much they are trying to charge for labor and parts but in my opinion I'd expect to pay around $2000. Here are the shop rates which is what you should be expected to pay for each job depending on what all they do. Let me know if you have questions or if there is anything else at all I can do to help. Thanks.
Thank you very much for the reply. More than I was hoping but it is what it is. I opened the pdf file, I am only seeing one amount in $ and that is for the $79.25 for the parts. Am I missing other price breakdowns or was it just
implied that the rest of the $2000 was for labor?
Also, mu husband is a mechanic, not usually for cars, he was more into nuclear and diesel engins on submarines but he is not helpless when it comes to cars. Is there any part/parts of the repair he could do to cut the cost? He has already told me he doesn't have what he needs to pull the pan and get in from the bottom.
