Question Asked: transmission fluid flush
October 04, 2010, 11:57 AM
is it totally unheard of to have your transmission fluid be so bad that they recommend cleaning and replacing fluid/filter then driving some then doing it a second time? the volkswagen dealer quoted me ABOUT 400. the independent shop that has my car said it would be 550 for two flushes and the diagnosis (essentially 445 for two flushes).
Question Asked: timing belt price
September 30, 2010, 10:55 AM
do most shops replace all of the needed components when changing the timing belt: water pump, tensioners, etc.... is $1000 too much or is that a good price given it's a time consuming job? do most shops purchase the kits?
