SOURCE: Freeze Plugs

Freeze plugs are generally pried out and pounded in, although some are available that seal by squeezing a rubber piece between washers. Use 2 wrenches to tighten these. All generally available at auto parts stores.

The real problem is often getting to the leaking freeze plug. Some are on the lower sides of the block with plumbing and accessories blocking access. There are also some on the rear surface of the block, which usually require separating the transmission from the engine to replace.

SOURCE: what is the average cost for labor and parts to fix the exhaust?

It depends on the area your in as to how much labor and parts are being charged.
here in waco tx. a factory installed exhaust would be around 600 - 800 dollars,a aftermarket exhaust would be about half that.

That dealer is ripping you off. Ask around to find a good repair shop.
Just for the heck of it, I called an auto parts store, and the cost of the timing belt is around $36.00 and the sensor is about $100.00.
Different shops charge different labor rates. But it shouldn't cost anywhere near that dealer. Good luck.

SOURCE: Timing Belt

Normally my Honda Dealership replaces the Timing Belt, Water Pump, Valve Cover Gasket, Crank and Cam Seals all in one shot. Service life is about the same for all of them and the Honda Tech is right there anyway to do the Timing Belt, which saves the customer the Labor Cost of coming back later to do it. Prevents us from getting the customer back a couple of months later mad that they have to pay almost the same amount of labor again for another part to be replaced.
Normally they will also replaces the exterior belts if they have not already been replaced.
Go to for what the local cost are to be expected in your area, just keep in mind that it only lists the timing belt by it’s self there.

How many hours does it take to change the heads on a 98 Chrysler Sebring 2.5?

It's a 98 and not worth it. You'll pay for it , then have many other problems. Only to find out you have to rebuild the engine. If you really like the car replace the engine with a salvage yard engine. Way cheaper than a head job.

Go to AutoZone or somewhere that will pull the codes for free. Much better way to start the process. But sounds like the Torque Converter Clutch. Could try a Tranny flush to start with, could be nasty transmission fluid.

A 2 hour trip with a freeze plug leaking is almost a guarantee that you will be buying a new engine. Stop driving it until you can get the freeze plug fixed. It will only take an hour or so to change it if your friend has an skill at car repairs. Hope this helps.
