So here's my issue: my '93 YJ was leaking fuel pretty badly so I dropped the tank, thinking that it was the c clamp on the return fuel line. I was so very wrong. My fuel pump was rusted so badly that fuel was spewing out of it. I took it to the mechanic closest to me with the "best" reputation (Dave's Beach Auto.) He originally quoted me $200 for parts and labor. Now, after having my Jeep for 5 days, the quote is at almost $700 and appears to still be rising. When Dave told me that the quote was raised to $500, I asked him to let me find the part elsewhere to save some money.. his response: "I don't have time for that, you are taking up one of my lifts and a jack with your piece of crap..." I told him to put the Jeep back together and I would be there in twenty minutes to take it somewhere else. His tune changed a bit then, (he apologized and locked labor in at $150, regardless of what needed to be done,) and his attitude has improved since, but I really don't enjoy being made to feel as though I am a burden to him, especially when I'm trying to find a consistant shop to take my Jeep. That being said, my real concern is that every time I call to check on my beloved Jeep, he implies that he really has no idea what he is doing under the hood. I'm concerned that the work I am paying for will not be comprable to the price, and I'm worried that after all of the money I've already spent, this will have to be redone soon. Can anyone help me??
