I have a Suburban and needed the water pump and oil pan seal replaced. I did most of the work myself, I just needed someone to lift the engine and replace the oil pan seal.
I brought the Suburban to a mechanic who charged me 500 bucks to replace the oil pan seal, ANOTHER 500 to replace the timing cover and 150 bucks to replace the water pump (I had all the parts purchased myself already except for the timing cover). Is it legal for them to charge me 500 bucks for the oil pan and another 500 to replace the timing cover??? In order to replace the oil pan you need to take off the timing cover. I was going to check with the BBB but figured I would ask here first for some advice.
