    for your reference online prices are right around 135~140 so thats good they aint jipping you on parts with hohoho markups
    though you have assign some time to do the deed ... its a bit of a mess ... draining / yanking belts-pump-stat / cl-cl-cl-cleaning / reassembling
    and most importantly the water system must be burped till its hydraulic else those damn air bubbles will cause local hot spots and that takes time
    some lazy techs just refill and let the driving cycle push all the air bubbles out into the expansion tank ... bad idea cuz by that time the damage is already done ... and the alternative short start/stop engine cycles trick to do that without the high temps is really bad for the motor
    if the darn labor rates werent so high it would be great to just let them deal with it ...
