My car is a 2002 Chrysler Sebring sedan. It was leaking on the floor of our garage. About two weeks ago it had the transmission flushed so we thought it was done incorrectly and took it back to the place that did the flushing. They said it was the water pump that needed to be replaced and it would cost $1100.00, along with replacing the hoses around it. We called the dealership and they estimated $885, without the other hoses and without seeing it. Both recommended towing it if we were to move it so it doesn't burst and ruin the engine if we drive it elsewhere. Help, what do you think?

A water pump from dealer OEM part = $107
7 hours labor for 6 cylinder sedan = $350@$50p/h
= $457-00 .

This all depends on what your shop charges for labor?

If it is a major leak. I would have it towed. If it's only leaking slowly. Top it up and drive to shop. A few miles is fine. Not to the other side of the state?
