I notice an oil patch on the garage floor, just to the right front of the car. It was diagnosed to be a damaged oil pump and associated lining. The cost of repair is $750. Is it reasonable?

    Get a second opinion and see what the price ranges are. Make sure each estimate comparison is apples to apples and not apples to oranges. Ask a friend for shop recommendation that they trust if you do not feel comfortable. But please remember, in these hard economic times that sometimes the estimate is in fact reasonable but not having enough money to fix and not understanding car repairs does not mean that price is too much. Good luck.
