Q: How much does it cost to replace my canister, valve, and gas cap all together? on 2003 Toyota Corolla

I was quoted with labor and parts about $774.73. I was also told that this problem can't be fixed individually. My hoses that connect to the canister are dry rotted and should be replaced also.
Is this a good estimate or can I buy these parts on my own and take them to the shop.

CALL DEALER AND COMPARE. THE DEALER LETS US MAKE 25% ON PARTS IF YOU ARE PAYING MORE THAN THAT WITH HIM SHOP FOR AN HONEST MECH. THE 25% IS NORMAL DUE TO THAT FACT WE HAVE TO WARRANTY OUR WORK IN CASE OF A DEFECTIVE PART. WE ALL HAVE TO MAKE A LIVING BUT THERE IS A LIMIT. THIS AMY BE NORMAL PRICING BUT IT DOESN'T HURT TO CK UP ON HIM ONCE IN A WHILE. KEEPS US ON OUR FEET. LOL
I completely understand and I definitely in paying you for your time. But I don't want to pay it if the mechanic isn't honest enough with me to tell me it isn't needed or can wait until I can pay him. Again I appreciate your time!

You better find a shop before you buy the parts that will agree to do your repair when you are suppyling the parts....most shops look at it as if your going to buy a steak and ask the resturant to cook it for you.
I just had the evap vent hose from the filler neck broken, so my mechanic replaced with a used one. $165 for the part & $85 for labor.
