I have a 1995 Mitsibishi 3000gt base model). It has 130,581 miles on it. The engine is 3.0 DOHC 2WD. I have two questions. Oil from valve cover gasket leaked on the timing belt causing it to snap. Two valves were bent. The mechanic charged me a total of $2400 dollars to have the following parts replaced. This is off my reciept (crank sensor, water pump, spark plugs, timing belt tensioner, timing belt tensioner adjust, timing belt, v/c gasket set, head gasket set, timing belt idler, ignition wires) - $600 was for labor - 7 hours of work. My first question is was this a fair price? The day I got my car back, 3 hours after driving I got stuck again. The mechanic now says that the oil pump failed and my engine is shot. He said he would get back to me on pricing? Is the mechanic responsible for all costs of repairs? Shouldnt he have checked the oil pump when he did the initial work? Is the mechanic liable considering It broke 3 hours after I got the car from them? Please answer asap.
have the same problem?
