    I don't know the cost, but you can take this to a Dealer or an Independent to fix this. I suggest taking it to a shop that performs Smog checks, and a Gold Shield Smog Station is even better.

    Get a second opinion to be sure. If the info stated is correct, then the price you received is high. Estimating can be tricky, be sure you know everything that is included, or not included in an estimate. e.g. diagnosis, parts, labor, taxes etc.
    Like I mentioned before, I suggest a Smog, or a Gold Shield Smog Shop.
