I am told it will take 1900 hours to replace timimg chain
for the cost of $5,500.00 the car is only making noise
he suggested a repair kit first for the cost of $300.00
if i have to have the chain repaired i would be better off replacing my engine for the cost of $7,500.00 is this out of line? it don't even think the car blue book is even that high

    Yes, that is way to high... Go to a different repair shop.. Should pay NO MORE than 2000.00 TOPS !!!!!

    Way too high...you could about replace the whole engine for that price. Get a different quote from another shop. 19 hours?? Maybe with naps and beer runs and lunch breaks factored in.
