BonnevillesSince62, VanDever Olds, is that the one in Akron, OH.? I originally bought my Bonneville at Taylor Pontiac before they merged with VanDever.
Thanks, again guys.
Yes, they're in Akron
If the price you're quoting above is just for one 02 sensor, that is highway robbery. If they include diagnosis and labor, I can't see any more than 1.5 hours total, and that'* being VERY lenient. Most shops are around 80 bucks an hour, so I'd pay NO MORE THAN $120 labor. List price on the 02 sensor is around $115, which is still too much. The 02 is easy enough to get to, and unscrews like a lightbulb (you do have to unplug the electrical connector). You can buy an oxygen sensor socket at any parts store for about $12, and you can use it again later.
