Sorry if this got posted twice...I have a 2001 Rodeo that went in for it's
In addition to the regular 60K service at $309
Serpentine Belt $69.95
Emission Port is 90% blocked clean out costs -$99.90
Fuel Injector Flush $150
REar Differential Service $96.90
I am pretty sure the Fuel Injector flush is a WASTE as is Rear Differential
Service and I know the S-belt is a lot cheaper that $70 as is the Fuel
filter (correct me if I am wrong)
How easy is the Emission port to clean out and how much should it cost?
Also comment on his rates for the rest of the stuff.
Which filter? Cabin air filter on my Maxima costs $45... and I
replace it! No after-market replacements available yet... that I've
found at least.
Price the serpentine belt at PepBoys... can you replace it? On a
guess I'd say it doesn't need replacement... ask them to show you the
worn spots or damage first. If it doesn't need replacement, don't
How does he know the emission port is 90% blocked?
What is he doing for the injector flush... if he removes each injector
from engine to flush and check spray pattern it sounds good but is it
really needed?? At any rate, I doubt that's what he's doing... you
can probably do effectively the same thing he'll do by adding two
bottles of Techron Injector cleaner to the tank: about $15.00. Adding
a bottle of Techron at every oil change is the best way to avoid ever
having to have this service... or at least avoid it for the normal
Rear diffy service: again, what is he doing. If just draining the oil
and replacing it's a ripoff. If he's removing the cover, flushing and
cleaning out filings (it's normal for there to be very fine filings in
the bottom), replace cover with new gasket, refilling with new oil it
sounds reasonable and is actually a good service to have performed.
