My distributor failed last friday and it borke the timing belt, and the mechanic says it could cost upwards of 1000 dollars (this included fixing minor oil leaks). I was wondering if this was a reasonable estimate and if I should go to another mechanic to get this fixed.
Do you

Hi decisgrl,

There is no harm in getting a 2nd or 3rd opinion. The cost is dependent on what has been damages and needs to be replaced.
