I was quite skeptical too. So, I think I will get a second opinion and not give them the go ahead at this time. I noticed on an older post the expert suggested it would take about an hour and a half to locate this problem and they did not have my car in the shop that long to make such a determination. I will have my husband jack up the car and we will check it out with a flashlight for any oil on the underside of the vehicle.
$1400 sure seems like an awful lot. What is a typical cam, crank seal or oil pan gasket repair cost?
