$50/hr flexible based on the complexity of the repair/troubleshooting
Testing and troubleshooting to locate the source of a short or broken circuit. Test for and repair parasitic draw (battery goes dead over night) headlights, blower motors, power windows, cooling fans, windshield wipers, rear window defrosters all things I can test and repair. Also starters and Alternator testing and replacement.
Diagnostics to identify and correct computer control and drivability concerns
Water pump replacement, hose replacement, Cooling system pressure testing to locate leaks. Test coolant condition/strength and replace as needed. Change thermostats
Replace front or rear CV axle assemblies
Replace Wheel bearings
According to the time and labor guide as an estimate.
Replace wheel bearing by pressing out with hydraulic press.
Each vehicle is Different so pricing is based on difficulty and other factors
All vehicles have wheel bearings. Some have tapered bearings bearing that can be packed with grease. Most recently have sealed units that cannot be serviced and must be replaced. Some vehicles have a hub/bearing assembly where the wheel hub and bearing are 1 unit. The first design must be pressed from the hub with a shop press and re installed the same way. These are most common.
I do radiators, replacement, water pumps and fan clutches
Varies by vehicle
A fan clutch is a device that allows the cooling fan to release or slow down when cooling requirements are low such as cold start first thing in the morning.
Also engages to "lock" the fan blades to the water pump to provide maximum cooling.
A fan clutch can fail in several ways, it could not engage and allow the engine to over heat.
It could stay engaged all the time
The bearings in the unit could fail and allow wobbling of the fan or the clutch could come apart and throw the fan into the radiator
Radiators as everyone knows, leak over time and also plug up. Radiators begin rotting from the inside out due to rust, corrosion and PH in the water. Its not recommended that you use radiators from wrecking yards as they can look fine on the outside, but be in very poir condition on the inside. Due to poor maintenance or damage in an accident.
I replace radiators and use BG cooling system maintenance products to clean sludge and build up from the cooling system.
