Re: Need Some Help On A Jeep


Seems a little high but Denver's area seemed high

I used to do my own vehicle work, now other than tractors and lawn mowers never.

I enjoyed working on my older trucks, you could lay down and take a nap in the engine compartment lol

I drove a 2001 manual shift 2500 and my wife had a 2001 Chevy impala I did a lot of mechanical work on. I think I changed the oil on the two vehicles after (maybe 7 years ago) and since then everything gets taken in and I get it back in a few hours lol. Ed likes us, 8 trucks (until recently 9) and 3 wives vehicles on account.

5. Coolant Flush

Is this reasonable?

Seriously, you two didn't actually "check fluids first?

https://repairpal.com/estimator/jeep...placement-cost

"The average cost for a Jeep Commander water pump replacement is between $354 and $424. Labor costs are estimated between $158 and $200 while parts are priced between $196 and $224. Estimate does not include taxes and fees."

Re: Need Some Help On A Jeep


Are you sure they are not replacing a head gasket also due to overheating? Many head gasket blow after overheating on aluminum heads.

I think I paid $1800 to have a timing belt replaced once

Just paid 1200 to have my radiator replaced. Also changed serpentine belt. No water pump but a fluid flush of course.

Re: Need Some Help On A Jeep


my only issue with this is that your complaint is a light. The resolution provided is to possibly fix a leak. but no suggestion as to where the leak is from.

Re: Need Some Help On A Jeep


$1,800.00 sounds extremely rich for a water pump job. I'd get another quote on that.

I have never heard of a coolant filter before, is that a big issue on diesels?

I had the oil cooler restrict on mine (it's similar to a boiler design). Coolant filters are pretty common on heavy duty vechiels.

It's gotten real common with the newer emissions garbage on them.
