Chevy trying to charge me $400 to replace and program my crank sensor the labor $200 and the part $200 is that about right

To replace crankshaft position sensor you would need to pull the harmonic balancer , that takes a puller . Special tool > About one hour an a half . replacing sensor about half hour . This is depending on engine size V-6 V-8 A new crank sensor gm parts direct on the internet $42.00 . Here in PA the local Chevy dealers labor rate is $86.00 an hour .Pep boys labor rate is $115.00

What would be the cost to replace a leaky pressure hose on my 02 Cadillac deville. GM part number is 25768879 but could go with an Edleman 92096

It depends where your at , Probably about one hour labor ! Here in Pennsylvania at the Chevy dealer . $ 86.00 , Pep boys gets $115.00 , AAMCO they charge $95.00 for one hour labor > But these places you have to use there parts . So AAMCO wants $352 So it may be more then one hour labor ! Call around your area an see ! Or go here an check for your area

How much does it cost on average to fix a gasket on a 2002 Chevy Malibu ?

It depends on the gasket , a valve cover gasket would be less then an oil pan gasket ! Both valve cover gaskets $150- $ 190 , Intake manifold gasket $ 547 - $698 , Head gaskets $1,000 - $ 1,200 oil pan gasket $ 211 - $ 269 These are just estimates , not all repair shops charge the same . Here in Pennsylvanian local shops like pep boys charge $115.00 per hour , AAMCO does general repairs too , an they charge $ 95.00 per hour . I found the local Chevy dealer to be one of the cheapest around at $86.00 per hour ! It just depends on where you live ! you have to check around , Do let them bully you either , Ask what they charge to do you particular gasket an if they give you the run around tell them you'll try someplace else ! They always say well we will need to check it out first ! good luck hope this helps an may god bless you !!!!!!

How to clean dirty oil pump on 1986ford ranger

you have to drop the oil pan in your case it is a big job because of cross member blocking the complete dropping of the pan.
You need a engine hoist to do it and the disconnection of engine mounts.
some auto repair shops offer a system flush which might be ste setup for you.
pep boys do this for about 140 dollars in about a couple of hours labor

I have a 2003 chevy silverado 5.3L my check engine light is on and Pep Boys did a smoke test on it and they said it was something on top of my fuel tank that was bad. Something about a sensor on the fuel...

you didnt tell what code is assuming evap large leak and that the fuel pump -evap connection is culprit --fuel pump $200+ drop fuel; tank and replace pump 200 is reasonable go get another estimate from someone else and to do yourself buy a repair manual about 25 for chilton / haynes and see if your capable of dropping an approximate 6 foot fuel tank

Smoke test??? More like blowing smoke up your *%*&^%

Go to Advanced Auto Parts and have them check scan your OBD II memory for free. They`ll tell you why your Check Engine light is coming on.

Pep boys wants 900 to fix oil pan gasket how can i do it myself

You need to get the motor up high to get the pan out, and if its a 4x4 the front axle is in the way too.
And dont let pep boys do this. Most of them are kids still in high school or they cant get a job in a real garage.
