98 4-Runner, 3.4L V6
While doing scheduled timing belt change, Stealer says water pump needs replacing. Ok, that's what the Stealer does, but he wants $100 additional labor even though he's already in there.
I asked him, what if I do the wp later? He said they had to remove the timing belt all over again to remove the wp, another $150 labor cost. Oh yeah, and add $16 for $4 worth of anti-freeze.
Is this Stealer on the level? Never heard this one before and I can't get to a fiche or manual. Would like to get my truck back this afternoon.
I hate Stealers. Mechanics are great but the Stealer's business practices suck.
Thanks for info,
