    So last Monday I took my taco in for an oil leak. They recognized it as a timer cover leak and proceeded to fix it. I get a call today saying they resealed the timing cover and it is still leaking, and they located the leak at a small puncture in the front of the oil pan, really close to the steering rack. There is a small plug there that connects the power steering fluid with the rack and right above that plug was a small puncture. Apparently I landed my truck really hard, probably in Pismo, and it caused either my engine to slam down really hard into that plug, or my suspension bumper up really hard into my oil pan. Either way, the pan is busted, and they will have to replace it. The cost total for parts and labor is $1119.00. What do you guys think?:

    $850 for labor?!?!?!?! That is $141 per hour for labor. That sounds crazy high. If you can hold out a few days I would order the parts online and while your waiting make some calls to shops in your area or do it your self.

    do you guys think I would need to drain my diff since my diff is already plugged because I dont have cv shafts right now - they are being modded. All I would have to do is disconnect the front drive shaft right?

    Thanks for spreading the news :thumbsup:

    I'm still waiting for those damn custom shafts. The replacement shafts I bought are already making all sorts of noise.
