No, I don't have the Labor guide on CD. I have the big book at my shop. Feel free to email me with any labor guide questions. I don't have a problem sharing information with other techs. We're in this together.

I have a 2005 PT crusier and my front crankshaft is leaking due to this oil is every where I will jave to replace all belts and possibly my alternator how much is a good price to get the crankshafe...

It is hard to tell you what is too much as it all depends on where you live and the shop rates where i live and what i charge is 60.00 an hour what i would normally charge on something like this would be as follows and all labor hours are from chiltons labor guide some shops use a different labor guide which gives them more time to do the job which means you pay more.But here is my labor costs front crank seal that all you need dont try to let them tell you you need the front crank replaced but front crank seal with turbo if your car has turbo would be 2.6 hours so you would multiply that times 60.00 if it does NOT have turbo then the labor hours would be 4.6. It is a good idea while you are doing this to have the timing belt replaced again with turbo 2.3 hours with out turbo 4.6 so you are looking at 4.9 hours with turbo and 9.5 hours with out turbo now these are only labor hours you will still need to factor in parts and labor hours for any additional parts you may want installed. I hope this will help you and give you an idea as to what your cost may run good luck.

It took them most of the day, and the labor was $316, and the parts (6 m/craft spark plugs, 6 m/craft plug wire sets, air filter, fuel filter, ignition coil and intake plenum gaskets) were $302. They...

Labor in a good shop is run by time out of the Chilton's labor guide. Its a guide line for how long a job should take a certified mechanic. From the total cost, the labor looks about right to me. I don't know the make or model of your car, and am not sure what the book will say. In my option, I would say it looks right to me for labor. As for parts, that I can not answer. Every shop has a mark-up to what the parts cost them. Depending on the make and model, some parts get really costly. As for the labor, I think you got a great deal. Hope this helps.

Need a Belt Diagram for 2001 BMW 325ci

Whether you plan on DIY maintenance or not, I suggest you invest in a service manual for your car. When available, I like the Haynes manuals better than Chilton.

We have one with each vehicle and if you don't decide to do something yourself, it still serves as a guide so you can see if a quoted labor cost is justified or not.
It's a one-time cost that will pay itself back each time you refer to it:

Bad lifters

I imagine you probably have a 3.0 L in your van. Probably over 200,000 km (120,000 miles). the lifters in these engines have a problem with wearing holes in the bottom and not holding hydraulic pressure. get the lifters replaced. It is a 3 hour job according to the Chilton labor guide. Depending where you get lifters the can cost any where from $60 to $300. I got my last set on eBay for $40 us + shipping.

Hope this helps you out.
