Unhappy Repairs to 2005 Turbo Convertible

Last weekend I noticed that the AC was not cooling, & since I needed an oil change, I thought I'd take it into the shop for a check up. 82,000 miles. Last year the engine mounts were replaced.

Monday the car wouldn't start & I had to get jumped to get to the shop. Here is the list of what was discovered:

New Battery, Timing Belt, Crankshaft Seal, Oil Pump Seal, Valve Cover Gasket, AC Hose & Recharge System, Water Pump, Antifreeze Coolant, Oil Change, Brake Light & there's a hairline crack at the flange of the gas tank where the hose attaches. $2,500 for parts & labor. Just thought I'd post this for other owners.

Was the timing belt broke? You could possibly go a bit without the timing belt replaced if you wanted... Thatd also remove the waterpump and coolant too, aso its easy to diy the ac recharge and the battery change.

Glad ur pts in good shape now if u got it fixed tho!

Have had the oil leaks for a year and put that off. Now the water pump is kaput, and since they have to tear into it to get to the water pump, it seemed to make sense to tackle the timing belt, that's not quite right now, rather than spend the money on labor twice.

Did you keep up with maintenance using the right oil and coolant? I think having the timing belt done too was a great idea. $2500. is a lot to put out at one time. I like your moons and white walls
