card died no check engine light after firestone said they cant fix on post sent to dealer for repair. they told me timing belt had teeth missing had 20% compression in one cylinder. thing he said needs to be fixed is timing belt, cylinder head gasket kit (head was not cracked ) exhaust intake valve replaced gave estimate of 1,738.00 plus tax total 1,890.00. this seems a little steep. Is it? he told me one part was being sent out and would cost him 350.He seemed to hesitate when I told him I was using online website for estimate. Any advice on what these repairs should cost in Manhatten Kansas (dick Edwards on hwy 24)

    if the timing belt jumped or broke and if it is interferance engine you probably bent some valves I would go out and buy a recondtioned head and have someone who knows what they are doing replace the cyl head I am from canada so I dont really know what your labor rates are but for 1900 dollars you might as well replace the engine

    You know I did mention that to the guy fixing the car. I hope there work is guaranteed. The car is almost paid off and this is our only transportation. So I felt compelled to have it repaired.
