That's all up to you, the minimum is $2 but most people give $5 - $10 depending on how difficult a question is asked. Some problems take a lot of effort to research and troubleshoot while others can answered easily. Most mechanics charge a minimum of 1 hour shop time to diagnose a problem and apply part of that charge to the labor time if the repair is made. We just want to help save you money on your repairs.
