I guess, but let's just say you could do it yourself for half of that.

For part cost sure. But time is money. It's a pain in the butt to replace the waterpump and thermostat - especially without a lift. Took me about 4-5 hours start to finish. I'm definitely not doing that again.

Today got a "engine hot! Drive moderately" warning.
Is this the dreaded water pump failure? Any other signs I can look for to tell.me this is the problem and I should get the car towed to the shop?

Started hearing the fan run on and off every 20 seconds or so this weekend. Got home one night and before I shut off, the fan was running very loud for a few seconds. No light indication on the dash. Water pump?

read the codes. The water pump doesn't trigger a light (for whatever dumb reason). it's likely but not certain to be your pump.
