I keep getting est...

I keep getting est on changing the 2011 jeep grand Cherokee trail limited of $550.00 I don't think its that hard to take 2 screws and a drip bucket and the air housing off. Is this correct? also I see my thermostat on the left side is this correct? most are on the right.

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? How many miles are on the car?

I have 62,000 the problem is the thermostat keep getting stuck and cold air start coming in instead

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

I would like to because of the cost sofar I haven't done anything

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!
