The OIl Pan Gasket sells for around $49 and the Labor Time Guide calls for 3 hours to complete the job. Labor rates vary from shop to shop, so what you pay for labor will effect the botXXXXX XXXXXne. For a job of this type, a "fair" labor rate can by anywhere from $85-$125 per hour. To this you will need to add the cost of an Oil Change. This can vary from shop to shop, but the average is around $25.
