I just got my car back:

$224.59 Timing belt kit with water pump
43.02 Valve cover gasket set
12.78 Camshaft seal
17.38 Front crankshaft seal
Parts total: 297.77 Labor: 413.61 Job total: 711.38
Cooling system service
Coolant: $65.08 Labor: $104.87 Total: $169.95

It required over an hour of labor to connect my car to the machine? Did the car sit on the machine for an hour and they billed for labor? Does coolant really cost sixty-five dollars?! So, they need to flush the coolant system when they replace the water pump? The fifteen places that I pulled up on AutoMD had flat rates between forty and a hundred and twenty.
This place was a hundred and seventy!

Yelp discount: $88.00 Yay

Total parts: $362.85
Total labor: 430.48
Supplies: 39.98
Sales tax: 32.63
Total: $865.94

The discount was supposed to be ten percent, but that does not seem right. I keep wondering if they charged more for the coolant flush to cover the discount.
