like I have mentioned in previous posts I am having a valve job done on my 87 300e. when labor charges were discussed he said $500 for the job including timing chain replacement.
he is adding an extra $300 to my bill because there is a plastic housing the chain runs in that also needs to be replaced. this dose not make sense to me because he needed to remove the timing chain housing to replace the timing chain anyway, i think? dose this plastic guide constitute $300 in labor?
( none of these charges include parts)
your comments will be greatly appreciated!
