    I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze LTZ – 160,000 miles. I brought it to the shop for a check engine light and was given this list of issues:

    Coil pack replacement
    Intake manifold leak
    Coolant reservoir is leaking
    2 coolant line leaks
    Turbo oil feed line leaking
    PVC valve in valve cover needs to be replaced
    Oil change
    Clean engine / put dye in to check for additional leaks
    Cost: $2400

    That seems like an awful lot for a car that is 8 years old. Is it time to just call it on the car?

    Just out of curiosity, what was the code for the check engine light you brought the car in for originally?
    Was the code fixed before they gave you this list?

    I don’t know.. the light came on and I brought it to the shop. I didn’t check the code otherwise.

    It may say on your invoice what the code was. I was just wondering because they recommended coils and an intake leak and I was wondering if they were just loading the parts cannon to try to fix an issue.

    What part did they replace to fix the original issue?

    You could inquire at the dealership the parts cost, also google the replacement parts from on line parts suppliers.
    Most everything listed is a simple R&R you should be able to find youtube videos.

    Yeah that sounds like an awful lot of money for a car like that. If I were you I would take it to an independent shop, rather than a dealership or commercial shop and get a second opinion on all that. Sounds like they’re out to take you for a ride on that one. If you don’t know of a good trustworthy independent shop personally I recommend that you ask somebody in your area who might know of one and bring the car to them, as well as the estimate you got in repairs and have them look that over and let them tell you what they think. Maybe it does need those repairs, maybe it only needs a handful of what they listed. You won’t know for sure until you get a second opinion. Let me know how it goes
