Repairs on my 2006 intrigue
I could really use your advice/input on some repair estimates I am considering for my 2006 intrigue. It had been sitting for a while prior to me buying it last month.
My steering was getting real difficult in slow speed situations with tight turns, but on the road it was fine.
Here are some things that a local truck/bus service shop recommend that I replace.
I did not notice any leaks underneath the coach, but their inspection revealed that the Radiator Fan hydraulic motor is leaking oil. The part to replace will cost $1650, labor is $1440.
They said that the steering gearbox is weak (not sure what that means, will check with them tomorrow) part is $1150, labor is $720
Replace power steering pump (Don't know yet if this is the pump attached to the PTO) $1305, labor is $540
Smaller parts include
replace old tranny oil cooler hoses, $310 for parts, $360 labor, oil cooler hose $185, labor $90,
wiper blades, $52 for the pair, Hydraulic hose $139, Exhaust heater protector wrap, $24, Engine belt tensioner, $169, Engine belt, $93,
The dash A/C was blowing only Hot air, total for testing and fixing high pressure hose $450.
I plan to go in tomorrow morning and make a decision on these things. I would like to hear from those who have had to repair or replace these items.
