That sounds high to me. I doubt you need both the master and slave cylinder. Stick with a stage 1 clutch unless your boostin.
This sounds outragous to me! They are replacing the entire clutch system rather than just fixing one single problem. I seriously doubt you need all that work done and parts replace.I drive an '03 GTS Spyder with 57,000 miles. My clutch recently started slipping really bad so i took it to AAMCO to have them take a look at it.
When he called this morning he told me that I needed a clutch kit($510), master cylinder($110), slave cylinder($55), flywheel machined($75), fluids($30), and 8.3 hours labor(7.2 for clutch and 1.1 for the rest)
coming to $1580 total.
Does all of this sound correct?
What exactly are the master and slave cylinders? What do they do? and does it make since that i need both of them and the clutch done?
At $510 for the clutch, should i pay the extra $150 and get a clutchmasters fx200 stage 2 instead(or another performance clutch kit)?
Thanks for the help
I think we were all shocked at that quote. Like you say, you wouldn't be able to continue driving it if all those parts needed replacing. They are simply trying to CON you. I would ask to see the shop manager and let him know that if the next shop doesn't list all those same items as needing to be replaced then you will be posting about AAMCO's HORRID business practices on the Better Business Bureaus website.that kinda shocked me that they said i needed all of that done. i figured that if it was that bad then it prolly wouldn't be driving or atleast not for the weeks i have been driving it with the slipping how it is.
Thats a lot better. I do my own work but at least you asked us before aamco pulled their bullshit. Good luck with the new clutch. Remember to go easy for the fist 1000 miles.i took my car to that guys shop today and the guy checked it out and all that i need is a new clutch and both of the cylinders are fine. he is gonna check the flywheel when he get the tranny dropped.
Normally he would do this job for $850 but since he is a friend of a friend he is gonna do it for me for $700 total.
Assuming you were doing ALL of the labor yourself then ya, you could. But obvioulsy the original poster can't do any of the labor himself so I'm not sure why you even bothered posting...i could go with a lsd and a stage 3 clutch for that price
