Water pump repair

Shop charged me $250 to replace water pump bc they think it's the cause of it over heating. What you think about the price? I'm not sure if this is true problem.

Sounds alright. Ask to see the old water pump and check out the fins compared to a new one.

Now my car stalls, turns off while waiting on green light, doesn't start up good, need to crank it 6-7 times with some pushes on the gas.

He wants to diagnose test it , he thinks it's a throttle position sensory , either the harvest or the computer that's messed up! At least 150$ just to diagnose it..... What Do u think??

If you were replying from your phone and auto-correct misspelled all of those words I'll forgive you......If not and you think a throttle position sensory or a harvest exist in the automotive world, you are a total tool and deserve to get raped by the dealer. There is no excuse for such nonsense.

I'm not "hating" I'm stating the obvious. Do some reading and become competent in simple repairs. Either that or google what the mechanic told you was broke before you go asking about some parts that don't exist.
