I have 102,000 miles on my 86 GT convertible and have been quoted $612 to replace the clutch and $407 to replace engine and transmission mounts. Are those fair prices?

That's cheap! Cost me $2400 for a whole new Clutch system on a car I use to have! If the mechanic is reliable and trusted, then go for it.


It sounds reasonable. Esspecially the clutch repair. But make sure this includes resurfacing the flywheel as putting a new clutch on a flywheel that is not resurfaced is a waste of time and the new clutch. The mount repair is within a resonable range as well.


If that is parts and labor, it is cheap... I spent more than that having the clutch, pressure plate, and throw out bearing replaced and the flywheel resurfaced in my 05 GT...


That price sounds reasonable. I have an 85 GT and just replaced my clutch with a performance clutch set and mine was $400 WITHOUT parts. If you ever find yourself in need of an estimate try going to repairpal.com, it's usually really close.


Hay, thanks for the tip about repairpal.com!


Very reasonable!


Thanks everyone. I feel better now about my mechanic.
