What would it Cost if I need the "Top of the Motor Fixed" on 2002 Jeep Liberty

Not really something we can answer on fixya.
It would depend on where you live and what exactly needs to be repaired.
Your best bet would be to contact a couple of local shops with a request for an estimate.

Labor time

There is no data base of info on this site

Just a free chat room

Ask a repair shop or dealer,they have the labor
manuals,if they even use them anymore

I wouldn't,I would charge exact labor time for all work.

Too difficult & time consuming, to get to & work on today's
vehicles, or to take on labor intensive jobs

Leaking valve seals. I want to know the cost to replace versus trading in the vehicle. The vehicle has 176000 miles and is in perfect condition. In fact, the original brakes still have 2/3 of the pads...

The valve stem seals can be replaced without removing the cylinder head(s) using special tools, so the cost would be be around $600.00 for the V6 engine and about $350.00 for the 4 cylinder engine. Since you don't mention which engine you have I provided both estimates. Keep in mind the parts to do this are the least amount of the cost (about $30), the major cost is labor, labor rates vary wildly from state to state even city to city, so get multiple estimates, Any well trained technican and well equipped repair shop can do this basic repair. If the new seals don't correct the problem which I assume is smoke then the engine has other much more expensive problems like worn piston rings and worn valve stem guides.

Have availiable a 98 villager with water in the oil suspect water pump falure / overheat and warped head blown head gasket engine runs smooth labor to replace head gasket waterpump and true heads cost...

$1000 plus the costs to do head gaskets, bearings (remember, antifreeze in the lubrication system means cam and crank bearings), you are talking about a rebuild, since it's out and apart you may as well do the rings too (150,000)...align boring, deck the block, heads...with the misc. items you will end up doing, you might be better off looking for a low mileage junkyard engine instead of going through that one.

My sons 97 sonoma starts sometimes. The shop wants to replace the fuel pump assembly at a cost of 1,000.00. Seems like a high estimate what do you think?

Well the fuel pump for a 4 cylinder is about $270.00. Depending on there labor rate this may be a reasonable estimate but it does sound a little high. The six cylinder pump is around the same price. If you can find someone who knows how to drop the tank then you can eliminate some of your labor cost. So $740.00 for labor thats a rip off.

I am planning to buy 2000 audi A4 with 95000 miles on it? What do I need to check on this car before I drive off the lot?

This info is from MSN autos.

Occasional problems on this vehicle, 4-cylinder engines only, are failures of the Engine, Engine Vacuum Hoses and the Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor. Failure of the Engine is caused because the engine oil gels. When proper maintenance schedules for oil changes are followed, oil gelling should not occur. Audi has issued an 8 year unlimited mileage goodwill repair for this condition. The cost to replace the MAF Sensor is estimated at $380.00 for parts and $60.00 for labor. The cost to repair the Engine Vacuum Hoses is estimated at $25.00 for parts and $65.00 for labor. The cost to repair the Engine is estimated at $4,775.00 for parts and $845.00 for labor. The cost to replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor is estimated at $500.00 for parts and $52.00 for labor. All prices are estimates based on $65.00 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.

Occasional problems on this vehicle are failure of the Comfort Control Module, with 4-cylinder engines only, and failure of the 4-Way Hazard Flasher. The cost to repair the Comfort Control Module is estimated at $290.00 for parts and $65.00 for labor. The cost to replace the 4-Way Hazard Flasher is $31.50 for parts and $91.00 for labor. All prices are estimates based on $65.00 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.

I found a used 1994 XJ6 that I'm considering that is in need of replacement/repair of the headgasket & starter, would this be a good deal at $800 for the vehicle? the bady & interior are in great...

yes. in my opinion this is a great deal for $800. i love jaguars and to replace the head gasket is no HUGE undertaking. just treat it like a luxury sedan and not a toyota. make sure that the machine shop magnafluxes the head to ensure no cracks are evident and get a quality head gasket set. on these later models the number 1 cylinder is in the front nearest the radiator. cheers
