Default List of "whats wrong" any ideas?
Took my truck into to have what I thought was a leaking oil pan but it turned out to be timing cover gasket and seal. Then they made a list of other things wrong:
-harmonic balancer- oil soaked, worn and deteriorating damper
-drive belt tensioner assembly, slight play, will require belt
-water pump- slight play, will be required w/ timing cover gasket, recommend thermostat and gasket
-steering rack n pinion- leak
-LF upper ball joint play, recommend all
-power steering pressure line- leak
-oil pressure switch- required w/ timing cover gasket
-lower control arm bushings- worn
-steering shaft- rusting recommend R/R, clean n grease
-transfer case service- tail shaft seal leak
-slip yolk, seal and bushing worn and leaking
-transmission mount- cracking
-leaf spring bushing- worn
-LF and RF motor mounts- cracking
-radiator- slight leak at RF tank, recommend w/ timing cover gasket
-trans quick connects @ cooler- small leak


Holy crap thats alot!

Anyone done any of those things or any input? Ill be looking into doing what I can myself.

It looks like the shop did a very complete inspection. Do you HAVE to fix those all, No, not at all. Would it be a good move to keep your vehicle in good mechanical condition, yes.

I'm sure that if most shops did complete inspections on vehicles, they could find quite a list.

So I went into school where I go for automotive technology and I went over the list with one of my instructors and we both decided that most of the stuff listed by the shop was not critical or needing attention asap.

Did find some slight play with LF inner tie rod and I replaced both outter tie rod ends today which go rid of most of the noise I had going over bumps and whatnot.

Sad to say some shops just wanna make some extra money right away.
