The estimate will be close depending on his labor rate. You should also replace some pulleys and flush your cooling system if your doing all that work already. It will be cheaper in the long run and keep you on the road.
Milts' specializes in BMW. When you say oil leak, do you mean power steering fluid? $1,200 for a transmission service sounds like a clutch replacement for a manual transmission.
A knock is bad. Something is not right and it should be looked at before it gets any worse. Let me know if Milt's can help. We're in Vallejo. Good luck.
As a shop owner seeing a vehicle with over 100K and the original sensors still in the car its time to replace them all. They are all tired and on their last legs. If just one has failed and the others are rock solid then just do the bad one.
Fuses first, might get lucky. We replace lots of combo switches though.
When your down to your last 3mm of pad material it's time. Can you see the pads from the outside of your wheels? Keep an eye on them because if the rotors make contact with the metal backing plates of the pads you get new pads and rotors.
I applaude your enthusiasm but this is not an easy task. You're going to have to pay to have this one done.
Lots of moving parts under there. Center support bearings for the driveshaft to the rearend, axles, or the rearend itself. If a good visual inspection isn't enough you may need to bring it to someone. Good luck and Happy Holidays.
You need to go to a parts store and buy the epoxy. Follow the directions and you'll be fine. Good luck and Happy Holidays.
We replace several clutches but not many manual transmissions. There are several vendors that sell used or even remanufactured units that will save you some money. Milt's in Vallejo is my closest store to you but I could come over and look at it if you want. Good luck and Happy Holidays.
