|MR.CLIFFORD||70 bucks for an hours worth of labor to install the belt(which you should do yourself) and adjust the valves. Both are pretty simple.|

Estimate on mechanical work
This is my first post on Wrangler forums!
Anyway, my wife owns a 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sahara and we both love it. It has about 100,000 miles on it and still running pretty good. Since i have no idea about mechanical work on engines etc, i was wondering if anyone could give me a price range around what this work could cost at a shop. The shop i was planning on taking it to charges around 70 /hour for mechanical work so here we go...
- Needs the serpentine belt replaced.
- Valve tapping. (sounds like oil is low, but it is fine)
Now the valve tapping worries me because i figured that could get kind of pricey. I'm here asking you guys because i didn't want to put it in the shop and have to come up with alot of money to get it back, and i also haven't found time to stop in and get an estimate yet.
