LABOR 1.00 100.00 Check exhaust leak cold, belt noise (squeal), tune condition, shocks, check engine light on
. . and he is having to add coolant.
. . Tech confirmed the coolant leak is the radiator that is leaking and will need to be replaced along
. . with thermostat and cooling system fluid flush. Belt noise was not heard today, recommended replacing
. . belt with OE. Check engine light is a 128 fault for coolant rationality fault, has seen 4 good trips
. . since last set, thermostat and coolant flush (above) will solve this. Tune up condition - Spark plugs
. . are factory, but they do not look OE, gap on plug is 0.62", specs 0.45". Maintenance interval is every
. . 30K on this rig, throttle body has some carbon build up, pcv valve looks to be original.
. . Exhaust leak is both the exhaust manifolds have broken bolts on them. Recommended replacing them
. . with all new hardware. Struts and shocks are currently not leaking all have some wear and tear on
. . but they pass a bounce test. Cost to replace struts, shocks - strut plates down the road is $750 to $1000
. . Recommended doing the exhaust , tune up, radiator and thermostat all at the same time by removing the
. . engine so manifolds are accessible $3500 and will take a couple days to complete.
