Question: What is the cost to repair timing cover gasket including labor?
Answer #1DaveJHM November 01, 2010, 17:38Master
The 12 valve 3.0L lists 5.5 hours for replacement of the timing cover gasket. The DOHC 24 valve 3.0L goes for 7.1 hours. Not sure what your labor rate in NY is, but I'm guessing like...$120 an hour.
Parts - probably $100 or so. Just a guess figuring gasket, coolant, etc...
