    $800 to replace oil pan gasket?!?!

    I had a small leak, so they told me it was the cooler lines, so i had them replaced, both send and returns, still leaking oil, they tell me its the oil pan gasket. They are telling its going to cost upwards of $800 dollars to replace the gasket b/c they have to take everything apart to get at the gasket. I am going to check the eSi manual when I get home to see whats exactly involved, but this seams OUTRAGEOUS. can anyone confirm whats involved? Its a 2000 4wd, 4dr.

    I believe the the problem it the 4x4 x-member that might make the price go up. Other than that it's just labor fees.
