i'm snowed in and bored. how many people here do there own repairs? if you go to a mechanic how much does he charge per hour?i do all of my own repairs. i'm not sure how much the garage i work in gets per hour. the last shop i worked in was getting 45. an hour.
I am a night manager at a good year service center in minnesota we get 74.00 per hour that is the going rate around here. i have full acces to theshop so i do most of my own work..

If your ever in Cincy, OH. In the town of Mt Healthy there is a Shop (mt healthy auto repair) owned by two Guys that I have used for over 15 years ( even now when I live in NASH TN) they are the best, the rates may not be the lowest, but not the highest and they work on about anything. When I was a teen and had no money to have stuff fixed, they would let me borrow tools from the shop to take home and repair myself. At all costs I stear clear of DEALERS, and use a small shop with a established history!

I do all of my own work, engine/tranny/axles/etc... Not like I could find someone around here to build a 300 for me.... Doing all the work myself has really kept costs down, I replaced the engine and tranny, replaced all the springs, added headers($256,) converted to EFI, converted to 4x4, put in a set of 19# injectors(stock in a 300 is 12#/hr) and a bunch of other stuff, all for just over $600 Canadian, try doing that if you're paying someone to work on your rig....
