Dear SIr, is $600.00 for maintenance on the engine with a cracked hose too much to spend on repair? Am I being ripped off?

If all there is to the repair is a cracked hose, you most certainly are being ripped off. Seek a second opinion from a trusted mechanic that friends, family, or the better business bureau recommends.

Evap leaking cant get engine light to go oue how much to repair

What codes did you pull up? P0442 small leak, p0455 big leak. I have experienced the same problems. It's usually rubber hose deterioration. Cracked ends, rubbed thru in the middle, or ripped hoses. If you take it to the repairmen it's labor of replacing hoses and smoking the system. You can do it yourself if you want , it's just time consuming. If you've done the job already you will be ok. If you want me to walk you thru this simple fix, please get back to me, I will be more then happy to help. GOOD LUCK.

Engine idles high

This condition is caused by a vacuum leak from one or more vacuum hoses on the engine. Inspect all the hoses for looseness or cracks, and also inspect the rubber boot to the throttle housing for rips or cracks. A bad intake manifold gasket or other engine component gaskets can also cause this issue.You did not mention the model,engine size or year of your vehicle, but the previously mentioned areas are basically the same for most vehicles today.

How much to fix a cracked block

Basically, you don't "fix" cracked replace them.

Now, having said that, is this cracked block causing a loss of coolant?

If this is the problem, there are some block sealers on the market that do a commendable job. Thing is, if it works....great! If it doesn't...well, you didn't spend an arm and a leg for the sealer.

A product I've used with some success is Head Gasket Repair and Block Seal by Bar's Leaks. It'll run around $13.00 for a 20 oz. bottle. Check for all their products.

Good luck!

1. CHANGE ENGINE OIL AND FILTER. Reset oil life system. Refer to Engine Oil Life System. An Emission Control Service. 2. VISUALLY CHECK FOR ANY LEAKS OR DAMAGE. A fluid loss in any vehicle system could indicate a problem. Have the system inspected and repaired and the fluid level checked. Add fluid if needed. 3. INSPECT ENGINE AIR CLEANER FILTER. If necessary, replace filter. An Emission Control Service. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or the California Air Resources Board has determined that the failure to perform this maintenance item will not nullify the emission warranty or limit recall liability prior to the completion of the vehicle's useful life. We, however, urge that all recommended maintenance services be performed at the indicated intervals and the maintenance be recorded. 4. CHECK TIRE INFLATION PRESSURES AND WEAR. 5. INSPECT BRAKE SYSTEM. Visually inspect brake lines and hoses for proper hook-up, binding, leaks, cracks, chafing, etc. Inspect disc brake pads for wear and rotors for surface condition. Inspect other brake parts, including calipers, parking brake, etc. 6. CHECK ENGINE COOLANT AND WINDSHIELD WASHER FLUID LEVELS AND ADD FLUID AS NEEDED. 7. PERFORM ANY NEEDED ADDITIONAL SERVICES. Refer to Additional Required Services. 8. INSPECT SUSPENSION AND STEERING COMPONENTS. Visually inspect front and rear suspension and steering system for damaged, loose or missing parts or signs of wear. Inspect power steering lines and hoses for proper hook-up, binding, leaks, cracks, chafing, etc. 9. INSPECT ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM. Visually inspect hoses and have them replaced if they are cracked, swollen or deteriorated. Inspect all pipes, fittings and clamps. To help ensure proper operation, a pressure test of the cooling system and pressure cap and cleaning the outside of the radiator and air conditioning condenser is recommended at least once a year. 10. INSPECT WIPER BLADES. Visually inspect wiper blades for wear or cracking. Replace blade inserts that appear worn or damaged or that streak or miss areas of the windshield. 11. INSPECT RESTRAINT SYSTEM COMPONENTS. Make sure the safety belt reminder light and all your belts, buckles, latch plates, retractors and anchorages are working properly. Look for any other loose or damaged safety belt system parts. If you see anything that might keep a safety belt system from doing its job, have it repaired. Have any torn or frayed safety belts replaced. Also look for any opened or broken air bag coverings, and have them repaired or replaced. (The air bag system does not need regular maintenance.) 12. LUBRICATE BODY COMPONENTS. Lubricate all key lock cylinders, hood latch assembly, secondary latch, pivots, spring anchor, release pawl, rear compartment hinges, outer liftgate handle pivot points, rear door detent link, roller mechanism, liftgate handle pivot points, latch bolt, fuel door hinge, cargo door hinge, locks and folding seat hardware. More frequent lubrication may be required when exposed to a corrosive environment. Applying silicone grease on weather-strips with a clean cloth will make them last longer, seal better and not stick or squeak. 13. REPLACE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT AIR FILTER. If you drive regularly under dusty conditions, the filter may require replacement more often.

1999 Lexus - ES 300 - STalling Problem

First of all, change the Lexus Dealership who is doing your rigid maintenance because they are ripping you off and not doing the work or careless on the way out of your engine compartment.
At 95k, you should have changed out your timing belt, replace all the sparkplugs, cleaned out the throttle body, cleaned the MAF sensors, replace the O2 sensors, inspected and replace the fuel rails, and the spark distribution units and you should not be getting a simple problem as this.
All this said, open you hood and look for a vacuum hose that is disconnected.  Most of the hoses which will cause this type of problem is located around the air filter box or connected to that side of the engine.
