Q: Cost of replacing N80 valve

asked by on

I took my car to the dealer since I got the Check Engine light. The dealer said there is a vacuum leak and I need to replace the N80 valve. They are quoting me a high price of $480 to replace the N80 valve. And already charged me a $100 to diagnose. I checked online and looks like the cost of the part is only $25. Need assistance on the best and most cost efficient approach to fix this.

My car has 95000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
