What's good everybody? I'm fixing to get some prices of specific repairs from those who have taken their I6 tb/envoy in for these services/repairs. It doesn't matter if it was the dealer or an independent shop.

In case you're thinking "hey brah, why don't you call some shops yourself ya bum!!"....well, the upfront estimate is usually just that - an estimate. I want the total cost, down to the "shop supplies" or "hazmat fees" or "doorbell ringing fees."

So, if you've had any of these repairs done by a shop, chime on in!:cool:

Spark plug replacement
Throttle body cleaning
Thermostat replacement
Front brake pads and both front rotors replacement
Rear brake pads and both rear rotors replacement
Serpentine belt/tensioner/idler replacement
Headlight connector repair
Sway bar links/bushings (front/rear)
Blower resistor replaced and new connector installed
Cluster replace and program
Any module flash (pcm, bcm, etc)
CASE relearn
Front struts replaced
Ball joints (upper and lower)
7 quart oil change, tire rotate, and brake inspection

:thx

But I just had a manicure done.

CASE relearn 50.00
Thank you sir!

If only it were that easy!

We have estimates from $260 - $300 (US) and $360 (Canada) for spark plug replacement but no confirmed price of repair.

I got a BCM replaced after it died. Took it to the dealer since it was under warranty and it came out to about $250 with a warranty.
Thank you sir!

How much did that cost?:raspberry

Thank you sir! And I hear you, I have to have someone install a windshield and just the thought of another man touching my truck gets my nerves worked:mad:

Spark plugs cost me 400$ but that was with the stealership taking out a snapped off one. Otherwise they said it would cost 90$ just to replace all 6

you planing on opening your own shop?

oil change - $27

sub install - priceless :D
Man you got the hookup on the oil changes, nobody around here is under $30 (up to 5 quarts):thumbsup:

Also, word:cool:

Getting a new cluster depends on where you get it. I had mine programmed at the dealership for $60.
Thanks man!

Was that parts and labor?:undecided
