What should this repair cost? What are the vairables?
Customer: replied 29 days ago.
to be clear, what is the reasonable cost to remove the engine, tear down, inspect, replace bent valves, reassemble, reinstall, and replace timing belt? Have I left anything out that might be needed or may be encountered?
