welcome! honestly IMO most places will try to rip you off more then not dependent on how much you seem to know, and they can tell that when you bring them the car saying theirs a problem based on how you describe it to them.

I'd take it somewhere else. They make serious bank off the labor for an engine job,charge you for all the fluids that would need to be replaced, that timing belt and water pump you'd put in the new car, and hope you dont know the difference. A GOOD mechanic, would care about his customer, do what is most beneficial to the customer, and try to save the engine and all the previous repairs done to it.

It can happen anywhere there are humans. I caught the local Chrysler dealership where I used to live charging my (at the time, elderly, now deceased) mother for the very first oil and filter change on the brand new Concorde she had bought - and they didn't change either. Before she took it in, I had checked the filter (didn't need to mark it - it was painted flat black and had a paint stamping on it saying "ORIGINAL FACTORY FILTER") and noted the color and level of the oil. When it came back, the same filter was still there, and the oil was the exact same level and color.
