For $1400 they had better be pulling the engine and replacing BOTH guides, heck the whole assembly for that kind of money. I've had mine "fixed" twice [under warranty], my advice is save your money - they can't fix it because they just put the same defective part in.
2001 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4, Off Road package, SOHC 4.0 automatic, Line-X bed liner and step rails, Alpine CDA-7894, Alpine R series speakers, Undercover tonneau, Rancho RSX shocks, Clifford Matrix RS2 remote remote start/alarm, BFG All Terrain T/A ko's. 06 emblems, clear corners, Wet Okole seat covers
You've got be kidding me on those prices? I am not sure what I would do if the service guy gave me a quote like that. Ultimate fighting i assume. Anyway I do know that these service writers make commission off of the work they sell that is why they advise all of the little bells and whistles. An honest guy doesn't make an exorbant amount of money but he can sleep at night. Others charge 2800 for a timing tensioner replacement.

I turned my car in on Wednesday evening last week and now received it back the next Wednesday morning.
They charged me the following:

Gas-Oil-Grease: $13 (oil was also charged in the Parts)
Technicians Labor: $1033.13
Total for Concern: $1362.72
Then they add to this:
Diagnostic Charge: $99.95
Service Materials: $30 (I am not sure what these are, a $24 tube of silicone was already in the parts)
Record History: $1.75 (but they still purge my records after a year)
Combined with an A/C diagnostic/repair of $593.65 (replace compressor tube) and the total bill was $2141.67
