$441.00 Cps

Ran into a friend today who was admiring our truck and he told me of his latest problem. Seems his truck was shutting off so he carried it to the local stealership.

I said it sounds like the cps. He said it was, they had his truck 2 days and charged him $441.00 to fix it.

I informed him it was a 10 min. job and I carry a spare in each of my trucks.
Then I told him to come join the garage.

'00 cc f 350 a few mods, and a bts tranny.

Wet concrete, Hot Asphalt And Life Wait for no one

Good job. :Thumbup: He's lucky to have a friend like you. Only had you seen him sooner, he could have saved a few bucks and bought you a steak dinner and STILL would have come out cheaper.

Ford Dealer CPS = $183.70
International Dealer 3 miles down the road CPS = $99.30
Labor for me to install it = $20
Knowing I didn't get screwed by a dealership = Priceless

Well let's see if you break it down there is probably 1 hour diog. time at probably $80ish. $180 for the part and .5 for install time which probably should be included in the diog. time for a total of about $300 max. He got screwed!

I had to pay the dealer for the part, but at least I put it in myself. Sucks not having anything but the dealer open on the weekend. Then again I'm in my truck and not walking all weekend.
