car repairs


Question by  Randy (29)

How much should it cost me to repair a cracked crankshaft?


Answer by  chazeloff (324)

Short answer 1500- 3000 dollars depending on the car you have to get machine work done to the motor then I would replace all internals.


Answer by  icanoutfishyou (1148)

The cost to repair a cracked crankshaft will cost the same as having an engine rebuilt, about $2000. Most of the time if you have a cracked crankshaft, the cost of the repair will exceed the value of the vehicle, so unless you can do it yourself or the vehicle has sentimental value, it is not a cost effective option.

You will pretty much have to replace the whole engine for $700 to $1500 (rebuilt engine). Rebuilding it yourself might be cheaper but will take tremendous amount of time.

It will probably cost between $1,500 and $3,000. It might be better just to replace the whole engine or get a new car if the car's value is less.

Depends on what kind of car the crankshaft is in. You will have to remove the engine to replace the crankshaft so you could easily be near $1000 to replace.

It should actually cost you about 200 dollars to repair the crankshaft. It actually depends on the type of damage that has occurred to the auto part. If it is a damage through an oil leak , it will cost a lot more. If it is damage due to wear and tear, it is a bit less.

If there is no other internal damage then you should only need to replace the crank as well as the bearing. Contact local shops for estimates.

Nothing!! Don't bother...................


Answer by  James916 (539)

It really depends. More than likley, you are going to be better off to buy a new crankshaft. If you were to try and have one repaired, I would say it could cost you at least $500.00. But you could buy a new one for that price. So I would reccommend a whole new crankshaft.


Answer by  Amber40 (24961)

I would not pay to repair a crankshaft. I don't even know how one would get cracked. Just replace it with a new one. As much stress goes on the crank it is not a good idea to trust a repair.

That all depends on the make of the car. IT could be cheap if its a common car that parts are available. On an expensive car the parts cost more.
