How much should a timing cover gasket replacement cost? (1 answer)

Had an oil leak so we had the oil pan gaskets replaced. Leak persisted. The timing cover gasket is now to blame and replacement for that and a water pump and a coolant kit and service is costing just under $600. Is that reasonable?

2005 Buick Century Reviews

What would make a 2005 Buick Century leak gas out on the carburator intake every now and then?
At over 101,000 I still love my fancy-goldie. This is absolutely the BEST car I have ever had and I am sorry they stopped making the Century. I replaced her brakes and rotors at about 85,000. I have had some slowness starting in the electric window rolling down on the passenger side. She has a little bit of a clack of the engine while in park - but dealer said that was normal and nothin...
Thje car has given good service. The major problem is the driver A/C does not throw out cold air but the passenger side does. We have not got a good answer from the repair shop.
