avg cost to repair timing cover and gaskets?

I have an estimate on cost to repair timing cover and gaskets, they are also leaving open option of oil pan repair or replacement. Not sure if I am being led to opportunity for future problem which does not exist and what is normal price range for these repairs?

First question - does the repair estimate include the proposed labor as a separate line item? If not, it should.

Be sure to always obtain 2-3 written estimates for the same work from local repair shops, for comparison.

Try these various on-line parts vendors; www.autopartsanything.com, www.rockauto.com, www.partsgeek.com - to list only a few.

In fact, they (RockAuto) list the engine timing gasket and seal kit from around $38.00 for your vehicle.
