    5.Power steering flush
    6.Brake flush
    7.Lubed shift linkage
    8.New battery
    9.Cleaned battery and ecu connections
    10.Oil change with filter
    11.Thermostat
    12.Tire rotation
    13.2 new serpentine belts alternator and p/s-a/c

    This is an average of the repairs around my house in northern Ohio
    Delaership labor per hour $100-$125 per hour
    Average Joe garage labor $80 per hour
    Coolant flush $149
    Tire Rotation $49
    Oil change with filter $35

    That's all that I can comment on, so basically I would say that you saved her a lot of money. Not to mention the fact that garage's always try to take advantage of girls, more so than they do guys.

    Definitely saved her lots! It's crazy to see how much a shop will charge for a repair compared to doing it yourself. Makes you want to be a mechanic! :money:

    She would have had to sell a kidney to have a dealership do that.:lol:

    You saved her a bundle. Including parts would have run ~ 1k

    She owes you a mod for your truck.
