Got the both of them done today $585.00 at Evolution Auto Repair in Arcadia,CA. This guy is a independent lexus / toyota specialist about a mile from my house. Job took 8 hrs to complete. Uses only toyota parts Evolution Automotive - Arcadia, CA
Hey you got a great deal and just hope the idler pulleys were still good and showed no sign of leakage! I would plan on doing them for sure on the next cycle and they will start off slowly by making a loud bearing noise that is lacking proper lubrication which can get very loud! The 585.00 is for parts and labor? if so you did really good becasue normal labor rates are 100.00 bucks an hour at most any shop and some dealerships are getting just a tad more per hour! Does he offer any kinda warranty for his parts and labor?
My truck has 93000. He assured me that if any of the related parts needed to be addressed he'd change them. With that being said, the Tstat, and surpentine belt was replaced as well. When I dropped it off, I asked him to make sure the cam and crank seals were still okay, no probs with them, so I guess the Mobil 1 is doing it's job
