the 02 sensor sells for about 60 dollars and pays about an hour to install the solenoid is most likely a purge solenoid and it sell for about 50 dollars and pays a half an hour to install. If you need all the freeze plugs replaced then the engine will have to be removed to do this and parts and labor is going to be about 6 to 8 hundred dollars.

Right now I am working in Pennsylvania and my truck is at a dealer, the items listed are what they say needs to be fixed, they also said I need a new intake manifold gasket because they found some oil where it should not be, My truck has 168K miles on it and the check engine light came on about two weeks ago. And I am short of cash,

but I live in St. Augustine,FL in your opinion would I be able to make it back without these repairs, until I get home and can maybe get them done cheaper.

 

Thanks

John

John the one thing that would cause you a problem from making it back would be the freeze plugs. I dont know how bad they are leaking. If this is just a slow leak if you keep it full of water you should be fine. and the other things wont keep it from running.

They are not leaking bad, would stop leak or bars leak stop the seepage without harming the engine ? Thanks in advance for your help fellow N. Floridian....do you also work on vehicles ? By the way I am in the Golf Business if you are a Golfer.( not asking to barter for engine work just throwing it out there since you have been so helpfull)

Dodge Mechanic: moparfl, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
John you could put some in it and this would help for sure.As long as you keep it full of water you will be fine. And yes I do work on them everyday and yes I very much like to play golf.

Is there a way I could contact you to perhaps work on it when I get home around the 10th of July. By the way I am working at AT&T National outside of Philly and then fly to Seattle for the Senior Open, Did I mention I used to be a golf instructor!
