So My LIM failed today. I saw the high engine light come on right away and was able to pull off, and was towed to the stealership. LIM, Water Pump, Belt to a tune of $1200 headed my way. Seems like a fair price and is reputable service department. Don't have the time to try to do it myself, sometimes ya just got to pay the piper I guess. Yay!

I was guesstimating.... water pump is like 30 bucks (approximately) I got one from autozone for that and a belt is also like 20-40 depending on brand. I thought I saw lim gasket kits for like $75 bucks.... just guestimating again... obviously will need rtv, fuel o rings and a few other odds and ends...

I just done this myself this past week, not bad at all, was out about 350 but that's cause i got my heads resurfaced and head gaskets as well. You just need time and patience and a good set of tools, hand and power tools i might add. Its not for everyone tho, but if you really want to save money and have some decent tools it really is the way to go.
