v6 shoulg get 20 around town, up to 30 on highway with the v6. mostly labor on the throwout bearing, as the transmission has to be removed with the bellhousing, i would check the condition of the clutch at that time, replace clutch plate anyway, check flywheel and have resurfaced, at the same time, just my opinion


20 bucks for bearing, 5 hours of labor to change it at 80 bucks an hour around 400 dollars


add another 100 and change the clutch at the same time


then get the clutch adjusted correctly and keep your foot off the pedal (the no 1 reason for premature bearing failure)


hope that helps
