Engine Performance problem
2001 Volvo S40 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 54000 miles
My car was leaking oil in the front. The autoshop who evaluated the fluid leak indicated that they found leakage from the upper and lower oil pan gaskets and both output shaft seals. Leakage due to age/heat. They recommended that I remove and replace the following:
Oil pan &/or gasket (1)
Oil pump seal -front (2)
Output shaft seal - left (1)
Output shaft seal -right (1)
They told me the work would take the whole day and labor approximately $2000. I've done some preliminary research and it looks like the work shouldn't take the whole day. I'm wondering also why the oil pump seal needs to be replaced if there's no leakage from there. I'd appreciate your thoughts on the auto shop's recommendation/time needed.
have the same problem?
