What's a "shool"?
In your last post, almost everyone who replied told you that you were
getting screwed on the price. It's NOT that complicated of a job, and
shouldn't cost the $300 that you quoted.
with people over wrong answers when you give us bad info. I, among
others, told you you got ripped paying 300 for a serpentine belt. For
the third time, if you want a good answer, give us something CORRECT and
COMPLETE to work with. Or are you just trolling? Here are your 4 posts
on this subject up to now:
How much does it cost to replace driver belt?
They are charging like $300, is this fair?
It is a Ford Tempo. Yes it is timing belt.
Actually I checked again, it is the engine drive serpintine belt and

The tensioner assembly itself is more expensive than the belts.
There is a HUGE difference between a serpentine belt for 300 and Timing,
both drive belts, and tensioner for 200. In fact, you got a heck of a
deal. If the same shop is doing the control arms, I'd say they've earned
your trust on their prices. Now it's a question of whether or not the
work needs to be done, but it sounds like they are legitimate to me. And
yes, an alignment is necessary after this kind of work. 4 wheel
alignment isn't cheap, especially with a decent warranty on it.

receipt in front of me when I asked. Then I double checked the receipt
and sorted out what type of belts I really got.
I also did an oil change and a brake job so the receipt was long.
Then even if the oil change and brake job werent on that invoice, oyu got a
but look at the consternation you caused by asking the wrong question WITH
the wrong facts!
Now look at my original post:
