I told you I would update you on the results of the repair to correct PO305 and PO316 diagnostic codes on my 2002 Ford Taurus SES.
Well, it took almost a month and $2,019.86 to repair. The problem was 2 burned exhaust valves, one in cylinder 5 and one in cylinder 6.
Breakdown: $1,194.00 Labor
$ 603.12 Parts
$ 133.00 Sublet
$ 36.94 Misc Chg
$ 52.80 Tax
Interestingly, They had (?) To replace the radiator overflow bottle. (Broke by the tech, I'm sure) Was no problem before the repair. Replaced oil pan gasket and front main seal. Probably another, OH MY!
In their favor, They loaned me a 2007 Focus for 10 days to take on vacation.
Thanks for all your help!
