What should the cost estimate be to replace the flexplate on a 2009 dodge ram 1500 4wd 5.7 hemi?


Not considering the costs of parts themselves, the labor to remove and replace the transmission, torque converter and flexplate runs estimates at approximately 4.5 hours. If you have a skid plate and dual exhaust, add another .5 hour. At rates of approximately $80-100 USD per hour of labor, you are looking at $360.00-$500.00 labor, plus the cost of parts and fluids.

Timing chain replacement labor time


Is there a reason you are changing it, unlike a belt they do not really need changing every so many thousands of miles/kilometres. If there is no problem, I personally would be loath to change it. As for the time to change it, here is the first of various videos to help you, the others follow on.

Intake manafold gasket


If you are just talking about the cost of the gaskets there is kind of an upper (plenum) and a lower intake set. If you just need the plenum gasket they are only about 30 dollars. If you need the entire set there are a couple of option. Just a regular set runs you about 70 (that's both the upper plenum and lower intake manifold but FelPro puts out a great gasket set called "permadry" and the runs about 165 dollars. If you were looking for labor cost it depends on the hourly labor rate of the shop you are using. The labor guide says that if you are replacing both upper & lower it shows 3.4 hours in labor. If it's just the plenum it says 2 hours of labor. Hope this is what you are looking for and by the way I am going by the most common engine found for the Windstar for that year and that engine is a 3.8 liter. If you happen to have the 3.0 the prices and labor hours may be different.

Tranmission gave out


It is 15 years old and it has done its job, it is OK for it to die now. You have to decide how much money you are willing to spend to fix a 500 dollar vehicle. Your choices are first to call around to transmission shops and ask how much they charge to rebuild your transmission or to swap a rebuilt for yours, and of course the labor to remove and reinstall. Another choice is to call around to junkyards, or recyclers if you prefer, and find a transmission which will fit, and came from a vehicle with much lower mileage. For goodness sakes do not get one shipped across country. Having that cost in mind call some shops and ask them the labor to remove the old and reinstall the replacement.
Myself I will not put a used wear item in a car, but many folks do. The warranty on a used transmission is to give you a replacement, not to pay labor for the second round of remove and reinstall. When you have the prices on those options, you will be able to make a choice, bear in mind the cost of just buying a 1999 Windstar.

Rack and pinion steering my rack and pinion steering just went on my 1999 windstar. Does anyone know how much this will cost to replace?


On a caravan new rack and pinion cost around 250 plus labor. Probally hour or two labor so at least another 100 there. So that should be a rough estimate for you.

Ford windstar van, 2003


I had a small plastic piece replaced in the transmission and it solved the problem(2007). My car was still under warranty, so it only cost me about $100.00. The actual cost was closer to $900.00 because of the labor involved. I used the Ford Dealer in Schulenburg, Texas. They would know exactly what you are talking about, if you ask them.

What to pay for a 35,000 mile checkup


The problem is that the shop charges is based on what they call "book rate". It's an actual labor guide that determines how long a job takes. They are not supposed to "add" hours if they go over the amount of hours allowed to do a particular job. Based on this labor guide, the shop will multiply the amount of hours a job SHOULD take by the shop's labor rate and this is the amount billed to a customer. For example, if a water pump replacement shows in the labor guide takes 2.0 hours, multiply by $75.00(this would be the shop's labor hourly rate) the amount for labor billed to customer is $150.00. Do some shopping around and you'll find out who would have the most reasonable shop rate for your particular job.
