Mirror- mirror only 8 to 35 most auto stores mirror and housing 25-50 salvage yards 75-100 dealer change out yourself $0 mech or dealer 75-85 avg labor per hr change out a housing 1hr . as to oil that varies from where leak originates valve cover gasket part 10 labor 1hr- but labor most likely more because will have to locate leak first- gasket oil pan 10 labor could be 2hrs seals 25 but labor could be 4hrs before sending in check that drain plug is tight and look at oil filter make sure is not the problem than check the other plugs transfer case front axle rear axle your leak could be from one of these also

Look on ebay for mirrors replacement or junk yard, it will save you allot and you can do it yourself just by popping the mirror cover off on the opposite side of the door to access the bolts that hold the side mirrors on. 10 minute job. the mirrrors should cost you 25-50 bucks depending on condition of it. if the mirrors is diffrent color, it will need to be repainted to match the car, 50-100 buck depending on the shop, check macos, they are cheap or call around and shop and get couple estimate wont hurt. Lots of car dealers use those portable/mobile touch up guys, the dealers used them to fix and touch up all of their cars, you might want to stop by some dealership and ask one of the used car managers ask him/her who they use and phone number, those portable/mobile touch up guys does very good job, cheap and fast. oil leak under the car, can be transmission leaks or you rear main seal, common to high miles cars to leak from the rear main seal which they have to remove the tranny from the motor to get to it, the parts is cheap but the labors will get you. you probably looking if the rear main seal, 500- 900 bucks depending on the shop. you can drive on the leaks as long you keep the tranny fluid monitor making sure the fluid does not go empty in the transmission.

Excessive oil build left rear brake caliper all over. i see caked on oil in above lines but no leak in that area

Hi, For safety first please check the Brake Fluid level and if necessary add but don't drive it untal you can have someone check the brakes before you take it to the shop. That said, look down the left side of the undercarriage for oil caked on cross members on on the left side of engine. This is most likely blow by from the oil leak. Please provide more info as you trace the leak down a bit closer.

I have an oil problem I am losing oil and do not know where it is going There is no oil the cement or on the side of the motor

see how dark and oily it is around your exhaust pipe tip. at 11 years old your valve guides and piston rings are beyond their normal service life and oil may getting past them and out the tail pipe.

look inside your air cleaner. old motors often pump oil through the PCV valve into the air cleaner box.

look at the back of the car itself. a bad seal can dump oil which turns into a fine mist which then collects as a layer of slime on the back of the car, like road dust.

Custom Rear view mirror

Hiya...ALL factory-installed rearview mirrors are installed with different wires due to options.
About 6 different rearview mirrors are installed with those options such as On-Star, light, compass, and those features which use different wires....THIS CANNOT be modified with different rearview mirror....**for example, the Equinox owner attempt to pull out a factory-installed base rearview mirror and put in different one that has compass/temperature built into the rearview mirror**

However, the wires are located inside the front headliner which requires removing the sunvisor (and possible removal of interior plastic trim part at the left/right ends of the windshield) prior to pull the headliner down, and a small metal philips or torx screw is used to secure the rearview mirror onto the bracket glued to the windshield.

The best solution is to leave the original factory-installed rearview mirror in place.
