    Is 3 hours labor 453$ a fair price to change an oil pan.
    Oil pan drain plug is cross threaded and can't be retapped. I can get the pan on line for 50- 90$

      Not sure if the price is 'fair' - for comparison sake, check the AutoMD website and the 'Estimate Cost' and Quotes' features.

      Depends on the repair shop labor hour rates - I would think over $150.00 per hour is high - but you have not provided a comparative estimate from another shop for the same work.

    The battery is charged, but it won't start without a jump.
    I just changed my starter today because it was completely out. I had it tested at Advance Auto Parts just to be certain. After I installed the new starter, I got a jump from my wife's car because the battery was low. It started right up. I drove it around for ...

      First, check the battery and starter cables for their tightness or free of corrosion and physical damaged.

      Note: a 3/4 charge battery is 12.50 volts
      A discharge battery is 11.75 volts.
      A battery under a cranking load and it is reading less than 7 volts,it will be a recycled battery.

      Local auto parts stores will test this battery and their vehicle charging system for free of charge.

      I replaced the battery connectors. Worked like a charm. Thank you!

      Battery connectors loose their tightness over the time and stop it the conductivity. Keep an eye on them.

      Note: i replaced new cables for my 92 Dodge Caravan and don't have any starting problem the last 12 years.

    Every time I put my car in reverse or turn AC on it feels like it doesn't get enough power and stalls out.
    It also seems to do the same thing if the ac was off. So either way it feels like it doesn't have enough power and just stalls out. Also when I attempted to shut off the engine it feels like its having a hard time when it shuts off and the engine starts to shake for ...

      The engine air filter should be changed at least every 24-36 months or 24k to 36k miles. Check the vehicle owners manual for the specific recommendations.

    The car, it hesitates with a long strained starting sound. I try starting it again, after first start and then okay.
    My car has 41,000 miles. 10 days ago I had an oil and lube plus AC flush and AAA 36 point safety check (suggested by AAA) Note: the day after the car was serviced. I didn't drive it for 8 days. It sat in the garage. Could it just be the fob battery or the regular ...

    when you pull the plug wire off it doesnt change idle at as all other 3 plug wires do. when out of the engine the #3 plug is showing that it is getting fire. spark plug is jet black when i pull it out. ohm tested injector and its good. could it still not be getting fuel
