Looking for the labour time to re & re complete engine on a 2004 chevy optra

Well , they don't sell those here. But the max time would be about 10.5 hours. Add 1 hour to swap all parts. I do R&R in about 6 to 7 hours out the door. I have all the tools and lifts though. Doing it at home will take a good 10 hours, No lift.

My engine oil was changed by the RV dealer where I bought he 2007 Winnebago View with a 5 cylinder diesel. The oil is "black" and not clear like I am used too. Is that normal? Also if I have to...

If it is a cummins engine use Shell Rotella oil 15/40. This is what cummins recommends. Use the same if a mercedes engine. Black oil in a diesel is normal so don't worry.

Cost of complete engine overhaul service

You might be better to get a used engine and have it installed. It would be more cost efficient. Labor to replace(with a new timing belt installed) is based on shop labor times about 5-6 hours. A lot of places who will sell engines often offer a warranty to go with it. An overhaul may run you in excess of $2000.
