$$$ for a water pump/timing set change?

Hey All, Happy Thanksgiving!

probably close to 2k because they gotta take the engine out

The dealer quoted me 4500 to do it. I decided to do it myself as the shops around weren’t comfortable doing it, or if they were to do it that would be 1500 to 3000. It doesn’t seem like it’s a common issue in my area or most people are taking it to the dealer.

Last year I was quoted 1600 at my local Ford dealer. You have to be real careful on who repairs it. My longtime mechanic said no problem and messed up the job. Took to anther shop and it ended up costing me 3300 So be real careful as to where you take it to be fixed...

Yeah, I have watched a million YT vids on this, but only one mentioned the torque values and sequence for the front cover, and the misfire recalibration you need to do afterwards. That guy dropped the whole power train out the bottom...not beyond my abilities, but beyond my tool set right now. I have no lift. Thinking paying is less hassle than doing...

Sealant application points. Black arrows point to additional areas sealant is needed.

My car goes in Monday to a Ford dealer to get a new water pump, new tensioners and chains for $1475. And includes oil change after install. With a 3yr 36000 mile warranty on pump. My 2013 has 135,000.

Dealers do charge slightly different prices, i called 4 and sure enough dealer closest to me had best price. Asked about ptu and they quoted 1,800 for its replacement, also cheaper than others.

$170 in parts (I replaced extra parts because I subscribed to the "since you're already there" theory).
12 hours, engine stays in, but gets jacked up and down.
Common tools except the balancer puller and a decent small torque wrench.
Putting the cover back after placing the sealant on it is the most difficult. It takes two people to be sure not to touch anything on the way in.

It's only slightly easier because we have no #26 bolt as shown in this pic.
