I am just recovering from a heart attack (mentally) after the quote for replacing the timing chain, crank sprocket, guide rails etc. Just under $3,000. In addition the oil filter housing and the line feeding oil to the turbo were both leaking and the expense was priced out separately. Each were charged as individual jobs. I feel like much of the labor was overlapping and wanted other opinions.
Wouldn't the labor for the oil filter housing & oil feed to the turbo be less when doing the timing chain, tension pulley, guide rails, etc. all at the same time rather than as if each job was done individually?
I was having the oil changed also which they billed separately as well until I said I thought that expense should be part of the timing chain replacement job. The dealer did credit me the oil change.
