How many hours of labor to change a power steering hose on a '98 Stratus?
Just wondering if my mechanic is giving me an accurate estimate on labor time. I need a leaky power steering hose replaced on a 1998 Dodge Stratus. Smoke has been coming out from under the hood; it is steering fluid dripping onto the exhaust and burning off.
Replacing this single hose was estimated as a $350 job because it will supposedly take a long time to reach the location.
Does anyone know how long a job like this should take?
