    I looked at the estimator link at the repairpal home page and only found schedule I and schedule II. You can go there yourself and punch in your zip code to get an idea as to what to do in each scenario. You will need to know what has been done recently on your car. It also made a difference on the schedule II as to what trans you have. Good luck.
