Let me give you an ideal what a fair shop would charge:Ugh. What's a good price for this?
Wow that's a really good price.Let me give you an ideal what a fair shop would charge:
I just had an 02 Impreza with a 2.5 SOHC in the shop. For just shy of $1200: T-Belt Kit, seals, thermostat, rear wheel cylinders, NGK IX plugs (#6), valve cover seals, brake system flush and filled it with coolant. Used Subaru parts for the seals and t-stat, Gates for the kit. The price included parts and labor.
Too common. Sometimes Subaru of America will split the cost with you- Subaru's undeclared warranty program. Undeclared so nobody can hold them to it. I don't know the terms, but maybe write or call them and see what you get.Wow that's a really good price.
So unfortunately they got everything taken apart and the head gasket is leaking coolant. So I have to get that fixed too. Probably going to be around $1900 parts and labor.
How common is this at 90,000 miles? It's been well taken care of.
Fortunately I have changed the ATF within the last year. I switched it out to Mobil 1 and also changed the filter. I have not done the front and rear differential. How hard are these?If you don't have any records of the transmission fluid or front & rear differential fluids being changed, now would be the time to do those as well.
Not very, though you need weirder tools. Long skinny funnel for the front, and some oddball sockets for the drain plugs. Torx T70 I think?Fortunately I have changed the ATF within the last year.
