i have a 2000 ford taurus lx, 12 valve, base engine, OHV, 3 liter, V6. i was quoted for 6.2 labor hours to replace the starter at my local shop, which is about $80/hr x 6.2 hours = $496. but your website quote is Labor: $58 - $74. are you sure you are right, or are they ripping me off? please let me know. thanks, sk.
cost to replace starter 2000 ford taurus lx on 2000 Ford Taurus
i just replaced mine a few months ago and i bought it for like 60-70 bucks at a local shucks and put it in in ten minutes. (not an exageration) all you have to do is remove three bolts with a socket wrench, swap the new starter and put the bolts back in. the starter is located at the front middle on the bottom, easy access. have a look for yourself.
i think any charge over an hour labor (plus parts) would be unfair. i have no mechanic experience. if i could do it in ten minutes the guy who took over 6 hours seriously needs to consider a new line of work. next time i recommend researching it online to check and see if its something you can do yourself
