Q: The shop is saying the power steering pump is bad and it needs a new line for $820

asked by on

All of the power steering fluid started leaking out all over the front half of the motor. We took it to the shop and they say the power steering pump was bad and the power steering line was bad, they say it would be a seven hour job and would cost $820.00 to fix. Is this estimation right.
