I dunno, but I know this: It aint cheap

I somewhat recently had my belts/tensioner/rollers, and some other misc stuff done: new tires/alignment and more... (nothing like on ur list) and it cost me more than just a couple grand. :o

most mechanics will ding you in labor your for bringing your own parts, and will not warranty the work - a few don't care - i'd check that out first - you may find that it is actually cheaper in the end for them to get the parts

if you so have them get the parts, you're probably looking at about $2k - $2.5k all in

LOL - "new tires..." - you can't count that...I dunno what tires you put on your car but the new set of Michelin PS2's I just put on my ran me $900 for the set.

I think it's pretty common to expect at least a $1k bill to have a shop do your belts. A rebuilt pump is a couple hundred + a few hours labor for that.

You can change your own tranny fluid - get a jack or some drive up stands and you can do it yourself in a half hour. Fuel filter and hood shocks are easy as well. If I were you, I'd start doing as much as you can yourself. I bought my car never having a car that I've ever done ANY work on...7 months later I've got a list as long as my arm of stuff I've tackled myself and probably saved $4-5k in labor. I probably still wouldn't touch most of what you have on your list - but a few things you can do yourself for sure with a couple wrenches and screwdrivers.

As flash said - I'd guesstimate around $2k though...

Front engine seal,water pump/T-stat and all belts/rollers can be combined labour. I'm trying to remember the last one completed at our local garage and I think it was somewhere around the 8-9 hour area.

Fuel filter is a average of .6 of an hour. I think the cooler seals are around 1.5-2.0 hours if you have the updated oil cooler pressure relief valve and the hood struts are a complementary item and we never charge labour to install. Transaxle fluid change on a manual is approx .5 of an hour.

Electrical work is another matter... depends on the garage.
