    Looking for a good mechanic in Fort Myers Florida

    Does anyone know a good mechanic in the Fort Myers Florida area. The guy I use to use opened a new shop and his prices have over doubled. My car is a 2006 ZHP with 51K miles. However, I am concerned that it still has the original cooling system, tensioners, and CCV and I want them replaced. He had quoted me $650 last fall and now he wants $1400. Before screwing up my neck I could do these types of repairs but now I need someone to do them for me.. The quote tool he has is charging and extra $125 for the Water Pump and $125 for the thermostat, which are 15 minute jobs when you have the rest of the car apart. I tried calling several shops today and because I already purchased the parts they wont install them, as they can't warranty the repair. So I am sitting on $800 in parts without a mechanic to put them in. What do you guys consider labor to be for the cooling system, CCV, and tensioners?

    Because I already bought the parts I can't seem to find and Indy willing to install even though they are all oem parts. What do you thing the cost should be for the repairs above? Again, it just seems like they are double dipping on price as all the front of the engine will be apart

    Check yourmechanic.com ... You can provide your own parts and they go to your home or office. I tried them once for work on my Saab, I was happy with their services.
