Repair Quote

I recently had a mechanic quote to replace welsh plugs and 4 tie rod ends in
a 6 cylinder ford sedan (Australian 1992 Falcon). He said it would take 48
hours! Does this sounds excessive to anyone?

Maybe he just meant he's do the job over the weekend?

Nope, that's how long he reckons it will take and is to charge 48 hours
time!

I'll give you a break and do it for 46 hours labor, but you need to tell
me what a "welsh plug" is first. :) Oh wait, if a welsh plug is the same
as a feeze plug and you want them ALL replaced I'll have to think it
over. You probably have to pull the engine and strip it down to replace
them all. Why not replace the one that is leaking only?
