I have a 96 ES 3.5. I just got my water pump and timing belt replaced. The total bill was $531.35. Is that a normal price? Here is what the bill states:
REPLACED LEAKY WATERPUMP, TIMINGBELT, TIMINGBELT TENSIONER, AND DRIVEBELT.

1 WATER PUMP $70.95
1 COOLANT $9.24
1 SEALER $7.43
1 BELT $56.95
1 TENSIONER $100.07
1 BELT-ACCESSORY DRIVE $20.72
SHOP SUPPLIES $15.92
LABOR AMOUNT $236.00
SALES TAX $14.07

PLEASE PAY THIS AMOUNT $531.95

I doubt anyone really wanted to read all that..but I just wanted to know if those totals are ok or too expensive. I got it done a 5 star Dodge Dealership in my hometown. Another thing I noticed after I drove the car from the shop, the vents are blowing a burning rubber smell when I'm idling. I had this problem before the water pump went out, I assumed that anti-freeze was leaking out of the water pump and getting hot, but it is still emitting the smell. I thought that after I had the new water pump, the smell would go away. Should I take it back to the shop? Please help...Thanks :( :confused:

that price is about par for the course both from what i've experienced and what others here have posted. the smell should dissipate but if it doesn't within a week or a few days at least take it back in.
